Yes give it until Monday, then please report back. Happen to know that the team overseeing such awards is very small and at least one had a recent addition to the family.

Exactly the same logic for me. Once the SFO lounge opens, I’ll consider buying a membership. Until then, 75k passes + PP is sufficient.

I feel bad for you folks who have to key in a MP number. One of my favorite parts of The MVPG line is that they immediately know who I am, my status, and upcoming flights after I verbally confirm my...
