I have had such an incredible week. First, I found out that my passport expired six months ago. That might not be a big deal to you, but I am going to Cancun this Saturday! No passport, no trip! So, after a brief freak-out, I scoured the US State Department web site for help. Turns out, if you go to one of their "regional" offices you can turn around a US passport in less than a day. A couple of minor details, you...

Jealous? Well, I must admit I am really excited. My hubby Mark is heading down with me to celebrate a romantic Valentine's Day and then I stay on for a Routes Air Service Conference focusing on Latin America (he comes home to hang with the kids).

There are a handful of others that also set records- Burlington, VT, Portland, Maine, to name a couple- but what's really neat is that we didn't technically add new air service in 2008. We were blessed by some additional frequencies- 1 seasonal trip to DEN aboard Frontier and 2 additional flights (one Philly and one Charlotte) aboard US Airways....

I am so jazzed. I love winning once but winning twice is well…twice as nice. In case you haven't heard, Midwest Airlines contested the US Department of Transportation's slot award to US Airways for CAK-DCA service. Hey, we can't blame them for trying!
DCA slots are so valuable that airlines will do just about anything to get them. After a bit of back and forth between the airlines and a little letter from our President, Rick McQueen, the US DOT said "US Airways gets 'em- final...
