I didnít think about it at the time, but presumably they would have used them for UA3866. If they were rescuing the plane from SIN, a cabin crew wouldnít have been needed, right? Maybe Mondayís UA29 will be the crew for us tomorrow.
Downgrade to Premium Plus or economy?

Any thoughts on what these flights could have been for?
High 3xxx mainline flights should be ferry/reposition or charter.

They didnít say which, but PremiumPlus had open seats, so I imagine it was those.

I thought $3k was pretty pitiful given that Iíve seen fares at $24k on SFO-SIN. Few would pay that figure, so I imagine there were upgraded passengers in jeopardy.

The return flight went well. We landed early. Iím now in the Centurion Lounge all breakfasted up. Iíll climb back on ship 3961 in a few hours on my way through Denver to LAX.
