JHE is a live events company. We produce experiential marketing tours for major corporations like Sprint, Fox Sports, Ford, Aaron’s, and others at sporting and live entertainment events. How often do you travel? I usually take about two to three dozen trips a year. It’s mostly domestic routes but covering both coasts. When is your next trip? I’m headed to Glasgow with my son to spend eight days golfing in Scotland. What’s your favorite part of flying? Do you sleep, work, or read in flight? Jay’s travel tip: USE AN APP TO TRACK YOUR FLIGHTS OR GET A FLIGHTSTATUS TOOL. I purposely book flights with Wi-Fi because that’s one, two, or three more hours of productivity. Do you have a favorite airport? Charlotte. There’s no way your favorite airport can’t be home. What’s your favorite frequent-flyer perk? I’m a Chairman’s Preferred, so it’s the upgrades What’s a place on your bucket list and what are some of your favorite destinations? I’ve always wanted to go to Scotland to play golf, which I’ll be doing shortly. A few of my other favorite destinations are Maui and Turks and Caicos. I love the fact that I can get there with just one or two flights. Who do you wish you could sit next to on a flight? Arnold Palmer. I use the terms “gentleman’s gentleman” and “statesman” because, to me, that’s the way he carries himself. Window or aisle? Aisle during the day and window at night. During the day I’m on Wi-Fi and working, and at night I want to sit next to the wall so I can sleep. Are you a US Airways frequent flyer with an interesting story to tell?

It’s also the fact that I do fly out of a hub city, and quite a few of the flight attendants and gate agents are based here as well. Sometimes our company has twenty to thirty employees traveling to the same place, so the gate agents and airport workers get to know us. — which can spoil you. I also use miles to buy last-minute tickets for business travel for my employees.
