We're going to try something a little different during the winter doldrums. On Saturdays in January and February, we will fly from one of our hubs to another - one city pair a week - until we have visited all of our hubs. To accommodate the spread of time zones our pilots have, take-offs will be at 10 a.m., hub local time, we'll probably use 10 a.m., Midwest, for Narita. There will be a new award for pilots who complete all the legs.
