Hard to say if it was a waste. The comfort of just knowing you were in a nice seat might have induced the sleep. Or a lot of drugs.

I often use my Apple wallet. I don't think UA can delete those ones? I'm getting away from paper BPs nowadays, but like to have 'em in app and wallet. I like redundancy. I like redundancy.
