I talked to my boss today about the upcoming Christmas holiday. (Yes, I really do have to think that far in advance.) I have off the week in between Christmas and New Years! So now I have to decide if I want to save around $70 and fly to Atlanta and then Milwaukee, or spend more and have a direct flight and enjoy the delicious cookies on Midwest Airlines. I've got to decide between AirTran -- who is usually my go-to airline but they've stopped direct flights between Baltimore and Milwaukee -- and Midwest Airlines. It's a horse apiece, really, 'cuz flying to Atlanta takes a lot more time than flying direct. I guess I'll have to give the folks back home a call to see how much they are willing to subsidize my Christmas vacation.
