1. Look at the OPs handle (name) something about only flying J ...

2. Look at the OPs other posts and obcession with upgrades.

When you get to EXP .. I guess one more mid-con upgrade aint going to bother me much either way ... convenience first.. miles/segments second.

I didn't notice the "month out" part of it. In this care, EF may not be as much help except to point out flights that may already be a bit full up-front.

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions. As it turns out, its a moot point. I never realized that upgrade awards allowed for a stopover. My return to LA from NY goes: LGA-MSN (stopover)-LAX. Since there is a stopover allowed, my upgrade for the long segment, ORD-LAX on the 763, allows for me to upgrade the entire flight. Oh, and I managed to get a C seat LAX-JFK, EF REEEEEEEEALLLLY saved my butt on that one .

Collect it from AA, who will probably charge me $10 since this is on hold and I'll have to ticket over the phone (since the mileage upgrades are attached to the hold).

Not that it matters, but the correct answer is EWR.

Points become moot all the time, but it never stops (or even slows down) FT discussions.

So, they become moot, but not mute, as it were.

Cheers.

I agree...EWR EWR EWR!

I consistantly have the best luck from Newark...most loyal flyers are probably on CO

The last several flights EWRORD have not even been full in F on AA!

Well, that could potentially suck for my brother, who will by flying LGA-ORD with me. And if the stickers don't clear, well, he's not that used to sitting in F yet, he'll live. Me on the other hand. . .

My son & I flew ORD-EWR last month on a Friday and a Sunday & we the upgrade alert came right at th 72 hour mark (We're both AA PLT). I must say it was pretty empty in F.
