Window or Aisle? engage Chatting with a Frequent Flyer after retiring from a career as a teacher, Lee edgerton has plenty of hobbies - including lots of flights on Us airways. How did flying become a hobby? After my wife passed away I decided to try something different, so I started flying. I had never done much traveling, so I started going to different places and spending two or three nights at each one. How often do you fly? Lee's travel tip: On LOng OvErsEas trips, i LikE tO sLEEp FOr a FEW HOurs anD tHEn gEt up anD WaLk arOunD FOr 20 MinutEs. I like to make thirty trips a year. For the last two years, I've had nineteen trips finished by the end of February, and those were mostly just day trips down to Jacksonville or up to Hartford, my original hometown, to visit friends. The rest of the year, I travel to places for other things I enjoy, like skeet shooting competitions throughout New England. That usually takes up the last ten trips that I make. Jacksonville, and that's the last trip I need to reach thirty. And next Monday I'm flying to England. I used my Dividend Miles to book that trip. When is your next trip? When you're not flying, what are you doing? Tomorrow I'm heading from Newport News to I volunteer at Colonial Williamsburg as a hotel concierge. My wife and I started visiting there in the early 1980s. We became members of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, and when she passed away I made donations, which the foundation used to plant daffodils in her honor. Then I started volunteering, and now I work there five days a week. dividend miles Insider it's better to be Preferred ✈ dividend Miles preferred members get more of the good stuff like unlimited upgrades to First Class, priority boarding, complimentary checked bags, and bonus miles for flights. visit /buyupnow to learn more. 132 DECEMbEr 2013 Every time a plane takes off, I shake my head and say, "This is amazing." And every time it lands, I say the same thing. Window or aisle? For a long time I was a window person, but for the last five or six years I've preferred the aisle. I've seen enough of the ground. are you a us airways frequent flyer with an interesting story to tell?
