Hello everyone,
Do any of you guys/girls have jobs where you travel internationally frequently? If so, where do you travel to? What company do you work for? Are you part of a FF program, or do you always fly one airline? First, Business, or Economy do you most commonly fly? What college did you attend? Thanks so much, and looking foward to your response.

Alitalia777

P.S.-When I go to college, I plan on majoring in International Business.

Well here goes ---

every three months I fly to Melbourne Australia from LAX on United. I am a member of their frequent flier program, I get miles for EVERYTHING, long distance, food at the supermarket, Credit Card charges, etc. The company lets me buy my tickets (business class) on my personal mileage card and then I expense the cost but get to keep the miles  Smile/happy/getting dizzy. I have not paid for a personal flight in over two years.......I work at the international headquarters of Jenny Craig and we have a branch office in Melbourne Australia. I am the network administrator (computer geek) in both offices.

I went to the University of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh PA and majored in Accounting with a minor in Computer Science.

I hope that answers your questions.

YES !

My company is on a deal with an Italian cstomer-to-be, and I am working on something that needs a lot of on site testing, so I've flown to Rome 5 times since January. Usually, on a week notice, although last week it was : "okay, get your suitcase, you leave at 7pm tonight".

Unfortunately, no business class on those beautiful babies :

That's the one I flow on at least 5 times (did not take regs on the first trips)

Unfortunately, sometimes it's not flying. Yesterday, it was more like "take your car, drive to Italy (I work ~120 km away from the border), and do the testing. You don't need to go to the customer for that"

Sigh. The deal with this customer is almost complete, proably no more trip to Rome for me.
Fortunately, I've just learned that a new deal is forming with a Spanish customer. Malaga, here I come (unfortunately, Easyjet serves this destination. No mileage for me from those flights)

I work for a Canadian corporate travel incentive/conference firm. We organize conferences and sales reward incentive trips for clients worldwide.
The job is fantastic. Not only do I fly all over the world to do site inspections, but I and other co-workers also travel with these corporate groups on-site to ensure all is in order. Some of the places I have had the good fortune to fly to and visit are Bali, Maui, Morocco, Ireland, Greece, Cancun, Jamaica, Barbados, L.A, Kenya, Madrid, etc. The work is very detailed and stressful, but it is worth every moment. We are also very fortunate enought to receive free or reduced rate travel passes and free or reduced rate hotels for our own personal travel, which is great. I never take this wonderful opportunity for granted. Good thing I love airports, aircraft and hotel rooms!

I am a former Flight Attendant, so I suppose travel for business has been a huge part of my adult life.
