Thinking about booking the rest of my project with layovers to make diamond this year.. Thoughts?

All depends how many flights/miles you have to make up. I'd look at it this way: start with how much you value your time on an hourly basis. Then calculate how much those layovers would cost you. Then determine the value of the benefits you would gain from diamond, and justify whether it is worth it

I've done that before. It's brutal. Be smart about which cities you connect through and the time between flights.

Possible for a 40 min layover in DTW

Detroit isn't a bad airport to fly through this time of year. They don't generally have many weather issues. 40 minutes is cutting it close. You're gambling with anything under an hour. If anything goes wrong, you're stuck.

You're stuck unless there's another flight or two to your destination that day.

Hmm. Will test it Monday and see how it goes. Thanks P2

I have done it. It's brutal when you do it but you will thank yourself for your brilliance and foresight in 2017

@kpmg 1 yes those are my thoughts exactly

We are currently building the plan for the hybrid model we will follow mid October. (No specific date yet.) We have committed to an A/B model with groups attending MT and Th/F in person, working remotely the other three days. If you have an AB model do you deliver the same content to your students each day, regardless of them being remote or in person? Or is the lesson cycle one that begins on the first day you teach in person for each group? This second model seems complicated.
