Departed BWI Saturday at around 6AM and returned appox 25 hours later. Slept on the LAX-BWI redeye. It was worth it for the SWUs alone, not to mention the better treatment for being a 1K.

Have you tried United P.S. JFK to SFO/LAX? I haven't flown that route in quite a while but my impression was that United P.S. beat out all competition. I know that Delta, American, and JetBlue are supposed to be rolling out service comparable to international service on those routes but I didn't think that had occurred yet.
Delta has the Business Elite on JFK Transcons. It is their international product, and far superior to even VX in First.
