H class?!?!? Darn you! So this should actually be an interesting experiment as to how upgrade clearance actually works. Anyone else booked above a "V" class?

C'mon now, I'll be too busy listening to Channel 9 making sure Captain Denny doesn't miss any calls.

New to Flyertalk, but avid reader of Lucky's blog.

Put me down for the dinner and the pre-party only. I live in the East Bay and so will drive. If anyone needs a ride from anywhere else (even from SJC to restaurant), I would be happy to help. Just send me a PM to arrange.

To answer the status questions, I am not staying at the Hyatt, and wish I were Hyatt Diamond or foreign *G. I do, however, have one RCC pass I can gift.

Alright - assuming no work situations come up at the last minute: I'm in!

I won't be able to make it to the dinner, as my flight gets in too late, but I should be around for at least breakfast/RCC/UA760/afterparty.

To answer lucky's questions:
1) No - Staying at the Westin SFO Airport just down the road
2) No
3) Yes - RCC Member

I'll also staying over at the ORD IC on Saturday night - I assume the F&F rate is the best way to go on this? (It prices the standard room out at $81+, which I feel like is probably the best deal around...)

Wow, I can't believe that rate is available for booking < 7 days out. One bedroom suite is going for $149+. Nice.

Just in case anyone needs to book cheaper, I know Priceline 4* ORD Sat night was going for $46 ($60 all in) a few days ago.

Forgive the ignorant question from someone who rarely stays at an IC: What is the F&F rate, and how does one get it?

Sorry! I meant to edit my post earlier with the link.

Intercontinental Hotels Group Senior VP of Marketing Steve Sickel shared his Friends & Family link with Randy a couple years ago and Randy shared it with his friends and family via his blog. So, it's legit. Nothing to worry about IDing your friend or family. Bookmark it.

Rides to Max's Burlingame

I'm in the northern portion of the Peninsula. If you need rides to/from BART/Caltrain stations for the dinner, please PM/e-mail me directly.

Closest BART/Caltrain station to dinner - Millbrae

My upgrade cleared overnight, I am in H class. Guess I'll be a snob sitting in FC, but I'll join the party wherever it is. (after I enjoy my hot nuts).

BTW, I'm in 4F currently. I usually avoid middle seats on the ghetto bird due to crap overhead bins, but as I figured easy aisle access would be preferred.
