Travel is a beautiful thing

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

The beautiful thing about living in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is the ease with which one can travel. With two major airports, there’s plenty of opportunity to get out of Dodge for the weekend to explore, dream, and discover. And, being centrally located, you can be on the east coast or the west coast in less than 4 hours – how marvelous is that?

American Airlines® offers several ways to be “in the know” about great travel deals:

1. Fare Sales and NetSAAvers: Can you plan trips on the “fly”? There’s always a deal to be had with these two great programs so put some sizzle in your life - “sail away from the safe harbor” and start living in the moment.

2. Deal FinderSM: Are you planning a destination wedding, family reunion or a getaway with someone special? Provide all the details and AA will do the work searching out the best deals on your behalf.

3. AAdvantage® promotions: Watch for opportunities to build your bank of miles and earn tickets to your favorite destination.

Don’t disappoint yourself – get up and go! Explore. Dream. Discover.

Thanks for being a loyal reader and have a great trip!
