Fun story about the change


During my time in athletics we flew private everywhere. As a kid who flew lots of Space A growing up (both military Space A going around Europe and United Space A with parent in the airline industry) it was an insane change. I had been lucky on Space A to fly first class but private blows it away.

My wife joined us for a trip back from the West Coast. She grew up...privileged (father a Southern Doctor during a good time to be one). Even she was blown away by it all. We all fell asleep on the way back and the pilot would tip his wing over a big city and flight attendent would tell her what the city was.

I have done well for myself after leaving coaching and for me a big thrill is getting A group on Southwest. Can make my month. But occasionally get to jump on private flights with clients. It is something else and (despite the stupid investment of it) almost certainly one of the first things I would buy when my Powerball numbers come up
