US Airways - August 2014 - (Page 232)

engage Window or Aisle? Chatting with a Frequent Flyer What's your favorite airport? Charlotte Douglas International. It's light and airy, and you can get around easily. It almost feels like a shopping mall, with a range of restaurants and even some healthy options. I also love passing by the piano player in the atrium. Susan Pimentel, cofounder of two nonprofit educational organizations, always travels with a sense of adventure. Favorite place that you've visited? Susan's Travel Tip: RELAX AND ENJOY. DON'T GET UPTIGHT. JUST COUNT ON SAFELY GETTING TO YOUR DESTINATION. ALSO, STAY HYDRATED BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER YOUR TRIP. Hawaii. It's where I'm from and where my grandkids live. It's a long haul from my home in New Hampshire, but Hawaii is exotic and full of nature. That's why I love it. Do you work, sleep, or relax during your flight? What type of work do you do? I work with school districts, states, and at the national level to implement programs that prepare students for college and careers. My work focuses on helping school systems improve on behalf of students. How often do you travel for work? I usually travel at least two to three times a month. Destinations vary, depending on conference locations or where educators come together to learn and share ideas. I frequently visit New York, Washington, DC, and Hawaii. DIVIDEND MILES Insider AMERICAN AIRLINES ADMIRALS CLUBS COMING ✈ Continue to enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi and complimentary spirits, in addition to house beer and wine and snacks, in all lounge locations.

Learn more about the club access by visiting 232 AUGUST 2014 What destination is at the top of your bucket list? I would love to go on a safari in South Africa or visit the Egyptian pyramids. If you could sit next to any person on a plane, who would it be? The Dalai Lama. He seems so at peace with life. What is your favorite Dividend Miles perk? The upgrades are lovely! I love that US Airways proactively works to reroute me if my flight is canceled. On trips where I'm scheduled to speak, it's good to know that the airline is committed to getting me where I need to be. Window or aisle? It depends. If I'm traveling at night, I prefer the window so I can sleep. Any other time, I like the aisle so I can get up and move around without disturbing anyone.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF SUSAN PIMENTEL This month, as we continue down our path of integration with American Airlines, we're working to rebrand each US Airways Club to an Admirals Club® and will offer access to nearly 60 Admirals Club locations worldwide. Work, work, and work! The flight gives me quiet time to concentrate that I don't get very often. I bring extra batteries for my laptop. In fact, I just bought a 10-hour battery for those long flights.
