engage Window or Aisle? Chatting with a Frequent Flyer As a senior executive at Sixt International, a global rental-car company, Regine Sixt visits more than 100 countries a year, making her a quintessential road warrior. How often do you travel? At least four times a week, mostly to visit our 105 countries. The US Airways Club and all Star Alliance lounges are my living rooms, and planes are my offices and bedrooms. And I love it! What is your favorite part of flying? Being in the air gives me the chance to get a lot of work done and to also disconnect from my busy schedule. No phone calls, no incoming emails, no interruptions — it’s perfect. I enjoy relaxing in my seat, sipping a glass of Champagne, and reading a nice book or my favorite magazine. Do you have a favorite airport? Regine’s Travel Tip IT’S IMPORTANT TO ALWAYS PACK A SUIT IN YOUR CARRYON THAT’S APPROPRIATE FOR THE CLIMATE OF THE ARRIVAL CITY. JFK is my favorite and most despised. Probably because when I land there I’m arriving in my favorite city in the world, and when I leave it’s the other way around. What are the most important items in your suitcase? My iPad and my electric curlers, which I use right after landing so I can look glamorous during my long workdays! Do you work, read, or sleep during flights? can read the latest books, which I load into my Kindle. Every now and then I watch one of those blockbuster movies that I never have the chance to see. What’s your favorite vacation destination? I normally read. This is the only time when I DIVIDEND MILES Insider EARN AND SPEND MILES ON JUST ONE CARD ACROSS ALL STAR ALLIANCE MEMBER AIRLINES. v The beautiful island of Barbados. I call it my paradise on earth and, as the honorary consul of Barbados in Germany, I go there as often as my schedule permits. If you could sit next to any person, whom would you choose? Ideally in between Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Window or aisle? As a frequent flyer with the Star Alliance network you can earn miles across 27 member airlines, all on one card.
