100+ on IAH-SFO in early Dec. Equipment was swapped from a 757 to a Polaris 777. Must had a lot of people SDC to it. Group 1 line was LONG.

Last Wednesday the 10.30 p.m. SFO-EWR red-eye had a 75-deep upgrade list. Longest I have seen in a while on a p.s. route without complimentary UGs.

must be and JPM ending. J was solidly booked since July and with only 28J I must assume a lot of 1K and GS in the back.

IAD-RDU a few days ago on a CR7 (6 seat F cabin, 4 booked, 2 avail). I was 16/29. 29 waiting to upgrade on a 50 seat RJ.
I was once booked on an IAD-RDU ERJ-145 which due to the previous two IAD-RDU flights cancelling had thirty-nine people on standby. 39 people competing for zero seats on a plane that only seats 50.
