Thought people would like to know that AS elites are eligible for op-up to business on oversold flights. I hear BOS oversells a lot so might have been nice if i could have gone. I killed my vacation days on the Alaska DO

Its 150% total under the promo for MVPG

50% base RDM
50% promo bonus RDM (100% of the 50% base miles)
50% MVPG bonus RDM (100% of the 50% base miles)

For MVP reduce the elite bonus to 25% since its 50% of the 50% miles

Bonus are awarded based off the base miles earned not the actual miles flown

I called thinking it was a sale fare not a mistake fare. Based on some reactions you think I took a razor to the Met's portrait gallery. My middle school students handle things better.

I know, just made a bonehead mistake. I took advantage of mistakes before (Wideroe, AZ/KL rtw) and just didn't think it through. So yes, stupid mistake. But the overboard reactions? Yikes.

I agree that some people went a tad overboard...was it necessary no...but you called the airline and admitted to it...then the deal died...so everyone assumes you killed the golden goose

I'll chalk it up to coincidence, it'll help me sleep tonight.

It is (or was, I guess?) a low base fare each way combined with no YQ/YR added on. Almost like getting a tricked out fare without any extra work...certainly more than just being a 'sale' fare.

Several posts have been deleted as members did go overboard in criticizing another member which is not permitted under the FT TOS. You may challenge the action but not flame the member.
