Two things...

First of all, Captain Denny has asked us to dress up a bit for the flight, as we did in the past for the group flight. He provides service back from the "good old days," so I think it's only fair we reciprocate the same respect people treated flying with back in the good old days. Of course it's optional, but if you can, by all means do. I know I'll be wearing a suit, though that's not to say anyone else has to!

Second, it looks like the festivities might start a bit earlier on Saturday morning at SFO. Stay tuned for details on that, hopefully by this evening.

Hmm.. Wish I had known about this last week. I've been gone from Lawrence since Thursday, and did not bring any dressy clothing with me.. I do have my Hawaiian shirt.

Not especially, though clothing is required.

I can track this in the OP. I'm in coach. Did your CR1 end up clearing? If I'm not mistaken, iluv2fly, chrisw, and waterstrider are in F so far.

Upgrade cleared. Sounds like I may have wanted to stay in E+. I hope there are still activities for us in F, even if most people are in E+..

You might be able to have them put you back in E+ or you could just swap seats with someone in the back.

This UA non-status guy will not be upgrading, but is thankful for the E+ seat and drink certs.

The party will definitely be in E+, didn't I hear UA installed Xbox Kinect on their 763 fleet? lucky9876coins will be busting out his wicked moves to Poker Face!
