Frequent Flyers to compete in road warrior contest

Frequent flyers have been invited to compete to win American Way´s coveted Road Warrior® title and prizes by sharing their travel stories.

Now through Oct. 31, 2015, customers who embrace life as a frequent traveler can enter the 14th Annual American Way Road Warrior® Contest by completing a series of thought provoking, travel-related challenges. The editorial staff of American Way, the world´s largest inflight magazine, in November will name five winners.

“We connect with American Way readers every month by telling them vivid stories about intriguing travel experiences, off-the-beaten-path hot spots and famous personalities,” said Adam Pitluk, editor of American Way. “With our annual Road Warrior® Contest, we invite readers to tell us their stories and reveal how they manage their busy lives. These extraordinary people inspire us every year.”

Since being a Road Warrior means often being on the go, the American Way team this year created challenges that encourage contestants to reflect on their adventurous lives. After completing a survey, contestants are invited to write an essay about Road Warrior life, pen a poem depicting their lifestyle and describe a typical two-week travel schedule.

This year, all five winners will win 100,000 miles in the American Airlines AAdvantage® program, which allows members to earn miles for travel, vacation packages, car rentals, hotel stays and everyday purchases. Members can redeem miles for tickets as well as upgrades to First Class and Business Class, vacation packages, car rentals, hotel stays and retail products.
