If not a mileage run, book your next few trips to connect thru a reasonable connection point or points instead of going nonstop.

It happens in those odd situations where I have to connect to my client. Luckily most destinations are non stop.

@D2 why? My flight is a short fight. I also don't travel weekly - if I can avoid it. Hence why I am short. Not everyone was weekly/long distance travel.

Eh. I have to do that. I honestly don't mind
