My upgrades!! My upgrades!!

Aren't you tired reading threads asking - Why didn't my upgrade clear at the window? Well, I'm flying on Thursday, and guess what? My upgrades cleared today - - 6 days out!! Cross country, too!! PIT/MSP/SNA! MSP/SNA is on the A319 with the new smaller F cabin! I was shocked!!

I just thought we could use an occasional positive post, not to mention a little kick in the rear to all the naysayers about upgrades not clearing!!

Feel free to b!tsch at me for taking up valuable server space for a totally meaningless mini rant!! I just wanted to share my glory!

BTW, fare class: T

Yeah, I just saw that post over there & was thinking about posting a link to my post here, even though I'm sure most people know he was just joking! I added in the "T class" line after I read it!

Had I thought that the rumor could take on legs and get some DL Management booted like Leo Mullen was booted (after the sLUT debacle), I would have been willing to let it grow a bit longer.

I'd be glad to publish the record locator to prove it, but, I'm sure someone would change my seats in spite!! I'm especially afraid to tell you what I paid for the ticket!!

As I think back, didn't we discuss before, that DM's have an unpublished benefit, that they can freely move PM's seats around in F at will???

No, only GMs and FOs. PMs are like little brothers -- we have to play nice when Mom is watching.

But we can make sure the get no Woodford.

Hmmm, if I only had the time to search out all of the DYKWIA posts by DM's who seem to want to trample on us peons!! YKWYA (You Know Who You Are!)

Don't worry about your Woodford. I only drink the GOOD stuff. I'm a Coke Zero man!!

I'm a lowly FO and got my UG cleared 4 days out, on a DTW-LAX 77L flight no less.

(I can picture Diamondzillas fuming right now.)

Only the greatest wrestler who ever lived.

Long live WWE (just think of it this way, It's a soap opera for guys).

It's the only good thing on TV anymore ...

Congrats to a fellow PM, and unlike most DM's and a few PM's, I DO speak to GM's and FO's, so, I'll say BRAVO on your mega-score on the 77L!! You better play the lottery!!
