I travel a lot and I truly appreciate the simplicity of easy plans and trips. That being said, if I can drive I will. I own a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe that makes me happy EVERY single time I climb in it. Purchased from my favorite car dealer on the planet-Knoepfler Chevrolet in Sioux City Iowa! Thank you friends!!! I can always COUNT on you.
By contrast, no matter how often I travel, I am forever “not comfortable” flying. In my experiences, there is NOTHING comfortable about flying.
Between ordering tickets, getting the best deals, airport security, long lines, priority check-ins, stripping down, carry on versus checking bags, smell and space with people sitting next to me, Spring storms, last minute travel plans and last minute accommodations, missing connecting flights, not being able to fly direct, flying first class and sitting in the back of the plane next to the toilet, snowstorms, the hustle and bustle, tram cars, oh how I could go on and on!
I chose Delta as my airline of preference because their hub is here in Minneapolis where I live, and my chance of direct flights are increased. By choosing Delta over others I also chose their loyalty program. I connected my American Express to it. So I receive points towards travel for every dime I put on the card. It’s a nice deal. Until it’s no!
The fine print is always there for saps like me. Of course I didn’t read it. Why? Because I am one of those people that actually believe loyalty programs mean we are going to have a personal relationship-it’s part of my business success training. It is EXACTLY the kind of loyalty I teach in my sales trainings. Loyalty that is based on a relationship built on trust and results. A relationship that forges a safe feeling, creating a level of intimacy-that is my idea of loyalty! » Read more
