I have to ask. It's 10:43 AM US East Coast time on the 1st of January. How have you already flown 6 domestic legs and 2 TPAC legs in 2018?

1/2 on 1/1/18 as GM. Cleared @ window into F for MKE-SLC and into C+ for SLC-PHX. Was 10 of 10 for 2 on SLC-PHX. PHX is a hard upgrade to get I have found since being here. Most of my trips I have paid for F...but looking at the lists they can be quite long in and out of PHX. Delta does very well with selling the F and C+ cabin in this market. There are many flights that have the C+ cabin sold out before the upgrade windows open with only 2-3 F seats available.

0/1 so far - January 1 ATL to MSN on a 717 had F completely sold for weeks and last night had 5 young children and their parents. Given noise level up there I was much happier in C+.

Also, my wife (GM) was op-up'ed on a long-haul to AF business while son and I (DM) were not. Don't have to feel bad about not trading any domestic first class upgrades with her in 2018!

1/6 BOS - BNA cleared at PM window. I was shocked - first time I've cleared at the window in over 12 months.
