Pending requests aren't failures. Please try to stick to flown flights, please.

1/4 - BOS-SFO 7:15am departure
Cleares into D1. 6/8 out of 22. Had an RUC applied but didn't clear at T-24 so removed it. Dropped from 1 to 4 to 6.

Consider it a successful trip. TCON in D1 without using RUCs.

Edit. Looks like this route is no longer Delta 1. No layflats.

As GM C+ will likely be my target. If I don't get a rate of UG to C+ I'll likely reevaluate my FF plan for 2020.

C+ at ticketing was probably my favorite benefit with PM status.

Always a win when an upgrade clears in advance. I don't worry about whether I could have saved a cert, all that matters is that I'm up front.
