1. IAH-AMS
2. Feb 28th
3. Fare class: W
4. Y-C
5. Booked Feb 17th
6. 2 seats Cleared immediately (R6)

4. Y-C
5. Booked Feb 17th
6. 2 seats Cleared immediately (R4)

Finding two conformable seats to and from FRA on our dates proved difficult. On the outbound had to settle on IAH-AMS. On the return we had some MUC choices and LHR choices. After checking "close" airports to FRA, we saw R4 on STR-EWR.

IAH-FRA-IAH
March 19-23
W fare
Booked Jan 29
GPUs applied at booking, neither cleared
IAH-FRA cleared today (March 3)
FRA-IAH still waitlisted (currently booked 32/50)
*Update: yikes, FRA-IAH suddenly jumped from 42 yesterday to "full" today (3/12), 11 days out! Might soon have my first GPU failure.
