A Note on Our Expert: John Sencion
John Sencion is “cocaptain” of Flight 001, the travel store that is every frequent flyer’s jet dream. Sencion, a California native with degrees in mechanical engineering and fashion design, booked it from LAX to JFK in 1989, where he met future business partner, Brad John. The pair left their fashion careers (Sencion was once design director for Federated Department Stores) when they launched the plan for Flight 001 on a plane to Paris. Despite his many frequent flyer miles, Sencion still loves the “personal time-out” of flying the friendly skies and is loyal to a singular Samsonite (which he never checks).
