Yeah, last time I checked they want $661 DEN--MAF (563 miles OW) at the times I would need to fly (on a CRJ-200 no less). That yields a 1K 2252 RDMs today per RT and will be 7271 RDMs after...

I recall FC was called "Employee Class" on pmUA by some.

Absolutely. I routinely pay with $$$ and miles to upgrade to BF on pmCO 772s, 764s, 752s, and 788s. Won't pay a dime to upgrade on pmUA 772s and 763s.
