Thus far I have three trips guaranteed to be happening next year, with some more to be determined.
I will be flying to Miami in late January on American Airlines.
I will be flying Philadelphia-Rome, Munich-Zurich, and Zurich – NYC in late March on Star Alliance carriers.
I will be doing a trip to India and Singapore on Star Alliance carriers in July.
