Did it. Got it. I'm sure FL loved seeing my 2 segments for the year on CO versus all my FL flying...

I just startd flying AirTran from CAK instead of CO from CLE going forward for 2004. As often as I travel CLE-NYC (almost every week), I still won't make CO Platinum again, so why try while spending too much money when AirTran is a great choice.

For a $845 difference in airfare, I can easily stand the 55 minute drive south. This elite matching is awesome! Thanks so much for bringing it to our attention.
