Jie flew down on AirTran over the weekend to meet me in Texas, and thanks to generally lousy customer service and unnecessary delays (supposedly caused by a missing flight attendant’s bag), she wasn’t able to fly down Saturday and instead came on Sunday. We’re using some free AirTran tickets they gave us after we spent 6 hours on the runway in Atlanta last January, but after our experiences this time I don’t think we’ll ever fly AirTran again. It would have to be a serious price difference for me to even consider that airline.
On the job front, we appear to be getting closer to a decision. I received a call Saturday from one firm to let me know that since we’re interested in spending a year or so overseas then they are willing to start us in an overseas office, like Singapore, and then after a year we would move back to Houston. That is a really appealing option, since we wouldn’t have to worry about Jie finding a job and then leaving to go overseas. I expect to have a decision soon, hopefully before the end of the week.
