I also only missed C+ on one flight. I felt that the access to free SDC was a nice perk as was the better recognition and treatment by SC agents, gate agents and phone agents when I needed help. Sky boarding on single class planes was nice too. It's definitely a better level of service. Most of the airlines seem to feel that elite tiers really start at the Gold level and that the Silver level is essentially Credit Card+.
Thanks, this is great info. What is your home airport? 35% FC upgrade percentage for FO is pretty good; I was just just under 25% before hitting GM last week.
