For my pregnant professional tribe, there is a small bit of news.

A very frequent flier who was pregnant called to ask if she could get an extension on her Elite flyer status with her airline. She knew she would be staying home with her newborn.

Alaska airlines just announced they WOULD extend for her and for all parents of newborns.

I take two lessons from this. Good for you, Alaska Airlines.

And way good for the mom who asked for accommodation. This is exactly the sort of confidence I encourage you all to have regarding your pregnancy.
