Business fares on AM are around $1400. While you won't get lie-flat's, you can do quite well on MQD/mileage earn on these.
For vacation trips I just prefer to confirm the upgrade at time of booking, because I don't like to start a trip with the disappointment of not getting the seat I wanted. On business trips I can deal with anything, but fun should be fun.:-) Love the AM suggestion, though. Thanks!
