Upgrd 50: The Big Five Oh

As 2009 comes to a close we record our thoughts on the year and review our predictions from January.  Due to the holidays we were unable to get everyone online at the same time. So Matt, Matthew, Fozz, Mike and a special guest recorded when we could. So be prepared for people coming in and out of the conversation.

We are not recording again until the later in the first week of January, so look for the next Upgrd podcast shortly thereafter. In the mean time make sure you check out the first episode of The Crew Lounge which will be online shortly after the new year.

Thank you to all our readers, listeners and guests for making 2009 a great year!

Re: Christmas cards from United, I didn't get one from Glen Tilton, but did get a very nice card from Graham Atkinson on behalf of Mileage Plus.

So did you guys give up on podcasting in 2010?

Mike January 13, 2010 at 04:35 pm

@Steve - give me 10 more minutes. ;)

LOL, that was great. Thanks Mike!

I think this was the episode where someone suggested highlighting something to do that is unique to different airports around the country. I agree. For example --- while connecting in Philly I always stock up on a few dry pretzels. I don't know why but I love those things. Have a long layover in LA? A quick trip to Venice Beach or a burger at Tommy's Burger, or a French Dip at Philipps. There's the Air and Space Museum just outside Dulles. Highlight one airport each episode starting with the major hubs. Thanks for the interesting podcasts.
