I know that this has been discussed in the past. CP holders who are also A-Listers don't have to worry about OLCI. However, we still have to OLCI for our companions. How about an added benefit for CP holders that affords complimentary EBCI for companions? Even though I am able to save a seat on-board for my companion 99.9% of the time, this would still be beneficial to not have to worry about it. Especially if a companion gets a B or a C boarding card currently.

I like that...however, it's probably simpler to allow A-Listers and CP'ers (but not BS'ers) to bring one companion with them in the boarding queue. It's not as if "exceptions" aren't already made for the family boarding crowd....or the more enterprising blue sleeve crowd.

SNA to SJC,flight departed 920am on 10/15.

A23

This was at about T-23:59:30. Had to fumble with pages a bit because it kept bringing up the TSA Secure Document.

Dang, I could have tried it for sis tonight. She's gone to the dark side (EB) but still, I could have least got to see if it switched off the security document at T-24

Yesterday's 5pm ONT-SMF, A53. Surprisingly not bad for T-19:30.

For people interested in how this is working out for MCO flights:

10/16 STL-MCO 5:35 p.m. T-24; A50
10/19 MCO-STL 5:25 p.m. T-24; A42

On the latter flight, there were 0 BS tickets, so A42 was essentially A27.

That's a great observation. MCO flights are likely to have high EB sales but low BS sales. Maybe it's a wash for T-24 OLCI customers.
