There was a time when H and V fares were part of a regular SWU! We are starting to go way back though. Boy I feel like a grandpa.

And wasn't it great when we used the certs during the C days that came with COS?!

Or the days when Tango fares didn't exist on TATL routes and you could upgrade any fare - a mere ~4 years ago.:(

I only got to experience the paper certs for 1.5 years - and I too prefer the e-upgrade system.

Anyone remember setting an alarm clock for 2a.m./3a.m./etc. (23:59 based on the time in the departure city) so one could call AC and secure the upgrade? I certainly don't miss that.

Don't you still have to do that? You don't have to call in, but if you want to do it right when your window opens...

I've certainly set a few 4am alarms :p

Am I doing this right?
 
Quick question. When I fly BA this weekend to LHR from YYZ, I fill in the flight info, put my sticker on this, and hand it in when they pull my ticket. Right? :cool:

Nice!! ^ That's quite the throwback! :cool:

I haven't seen the name Tilden for a couple of decades at least...

Oh, such lovely wallpaper.

I remember when an agent forgot to keep my SSWU. Those were the days.

I, too, like the new eupgrades. Just wish we could carry them forward > 1 year.

Thanks for showing!

Well clearly the airplane food back then was inferior to the fine fare provided in AC J nowadays. Everytime I travel with AC, I expect and demand a stuffed rhino to be on the serving trolley with the assorted lion, giraffe and leopard steaks :p

Another AC 747 throwback.

Am I hallucinating or were the AC 747s really configured 3-4-2 abreast in Y?? Imagine that!

.??? AC F did not have steaks. They had whole beef tenderloins(rare/med rare/ well done) and you selected what you wanted. Food was better in my opinion.
