I wish I saw more short lists!

It was in the upper 40s when I flew it on a Sunday afternoon in September. I was quite please to SDC into a F seat on my paid A fare off of PHL-ATL and onto it

DFW LGA nearly full of all Sky Priority

We had a flight recently that was nearly 85 percent full of Medallions going back to LGA from a conference. The amusing part was that most of the FF had higher status than their boss. He had opted to purchase his ticket full fare ahead of the trip, but seeing him take a good natured ribbing from his employees was actually fun as he was very gracious about it. I love all of our medallions and I appreciate the time that they spend away from home. When we are able to reward them with upgrades, it always makes me happy. I wish we could do it more often, but there are only a limited number of seats on the plane.

I was #2 of 63 for 0 on ATL-SFO last night. Must have been some no-shows though, since Mr #1 and I both got the upgrade

Saw a FC upgrade list of 88 for an MSP-LAX this week, I think that might be my PR

10/80 for 2 seats, LAX-ATL last Friday (11/9). This was WITH A RUC APPLIED! Was a challenge to get them to clear that trip.
