A new Frontier

$140 round trip, San Fran to Chicago

SF - chi is cross country 🤔

Cross a lot of the country

You're doing it wrong. You need to buy business select. More points. More flexibility. And it's not business class 👍

Southwest is surprisingly often far from the cheaper option. But boy do they offer consistency (in a good way), and I always like flying out of Love over the big airport.

2. Are expenses during alt travel taxable or non-taxable?

Are you able to sleep in? It doesn’t matter what time I go to bed, how exhausted I am, or what day of the week it is, whether I’m on PTO or working, at home or in a hotel, I’m naturally awake by 6:30 every morning. I think it’s age related. Is there a trick I’m missing to be able to sleep in?
