I am 5 for 5 on PlusPoint upgrades on the EWR - LAX - EWR run in the last thirty days. I haven't purchased a ticket more than four days before and two in less less than 24 hours preflight. Three 787-10s and two 767 Hi-J. It seems at the moment that the higher number of J seats out strip paying demand. Passenger loads are increasing and I'm seeing 2 -3 1K's pre-boarding as opposed to the 1 and sometimes 2.

Thanks! Very helpful color, although I know demand is going up. I will tally up all of the ETCs that I have and figure out what to do...
