Happy Anniversary!!   How Many Miles Did You Earn For The Flowers???

Happy Anniversary!! How Many Miles Did You Earn For The Flowers???

Today marks the 18th year of my marital bliss and like any decent fellow I thought to surprise my wife at work with flowers to acknowledge her sacrifice.   I figure it would be a nice change of pace for her day in between operating rooms and surgeries that typically take up her time.

So with flowers ordered a few days in advance, the surprise was set and I spent this morning waiting for her to let me know that the bouquet had arrived.    So at about midday, they finally show up and we exchange a few messages (Me in the blue):

flowers

 

Typically when an occasion requires flowers I always suggest we do it through United Mileage Plus because of the huge multipliers you get for ordering flowers using FTD, etc. through the MileagePlus shopping portal.   But in this case I ordered them from a local florist who I know and trust not to screw up something like flowers for an anniversary.  So sadly no 20x miles from United for a way overpriced handful of flowers from an FTD dealer.

However, it does put a smile on my face that my wonderful wife, in midst of talking about our anniversary, is concerned about how many miles I’ll earn for celebrating it.  I’m pretty lucky! 🙂

LUFTHANSA: Second A350 Arrives This Week & Will Be Boston Bound

Lufthansa is set to take delivery of their second A350 this Friday, February 24.

Once that work is complete, the aircraft will be available for more crew certification flights over the next 3 weeks before entering revenue service.    According to LH’s schedule, that means that D-AIXB will fly to Boston on March 14.

This marks the second of Lufthansa’s initial 10 A350s that will be stationed in Munich.  Ultimately 25 A350s will join the fleet and will be stationed between Frankfurt and Munich.
