The April Frequent Traveler University event is popular because attendees will have a chance to attend the weekend frequent flyer program while catching up on the latest frequent flyer stories with old and new friends.
Unfortunately it’s so popular it sold out earlier this year. But if you are still looking for a ticket, you are in luck. We are giving away one ticket to the April FTU event through our antipodal challenge.
It’s easy to enter for your chance at arguably one of the last available tickets to the April FTU event in Washington, DC. Simply subscribe to our email subscription and leave a comment in this post with the location you’ve traveled to that is closest to your antipodal point.
The antipodal point of any location on earth is the diametrically opposite point on the Earth’s surface, otherwise the exact opposite side of the earth. As a kid, the running playground joke was to ask a friend if they planned to dig to China. Which was never realistic, but it is now realistic to hop on a plane and fly to or “near” your antipodal point thanks to points and miles.
