Looks like all this flying has finally paid off. On my flight out to San Francisco from London I was upgraded to United Business Class. It certainly made the flight a whole lot more pleasant as I struggled to recover from my Christmas flu. I managed to get some sleep and do some work on the plane, the latter is something that I normally find very hard to do in economy. Not sure I could ever justify the five fold price increase in cost over a regular economy ticket, but its certainly nice to get upgraded once in a while.
On my flight back I heard the best ever PA announcement at San Diego Airport.
Would the two timing Southwest customer please come to the information desk to meet his wife.........and girlfriend.
Made the whole departure lounge smile.
