I rejoined the Admiral's Club today.
I did this even as American Airlines canceled my flight out to San Jose overnight. Thanks, AA. Much appreciated.
I have over 700,000 miles racked up with AA, which I guess these days makes me a minor league player.
Anyhow, as I said in a recent Twitter Tweet, the joys of business travel continue.
I am happy to be once again be a proud, card-carrying member of the Admiral's Club.
I'm proud to be able to get those cute little muffins and free agua. I'm proud to be able to get free wi-fi access. I'm proud to be able to get away from the din of leisure travelers and crying babies.
Of course, it comes at a price. 70,000 miles, in my case. I could have broken down and paid cash, but I'm generally so weary of business travel that I don't really look forward to getting on a plane for vacation, so I have no other good use for their miles.
And in any case, anywhere I want to go is usually blocked from using miles during the times I want to use it.
So, I've become an Admiral's Club vagabond.
Thanks to my inadvertent AA cancellation overnight, I'll be holding office hours at the Admirals Club in LAX between around 11 and 4 today.
I'll be the one holding the sign: "Will blog for miles."
As for the nature of my trip, I'm off to see the Google.
