Danielle Park - "Diet Coke. Must have it."
Our subscribers are the very best travel agents around. We know it, you know it, everyone knows it. That’s why we’ve been running mini-contests over the past couple months to get to know our travel agents better.
We challenged you to Wake Up with WheelsUp’s “Agent’s Must-Have Challenge”. No minimum amount of words, no right answers, and no wrong answers.
We just wanted to get to know that mysterious travel agent behind that screen because we interact with you every day. Whether it’s you reading our articles, subscribing to our newsletter, or following us on Facebook.
In the spirit of Travel Agent Appreciation Month, we’re going to share some of our favourite entries with you.

“On time airlines and easy access to plane changes.”
“Spacious seats on the airplane. Why should you have to pay extra for comfort?”
