I am blogging from the skies! I’m somewhere between Miami and NYC. When I checked in the lovely American Airlines lady told me I had a yucky middle seat and she’d change it. She then said she gave me an “awesome” seat. When I boarded I discovered a free upgrade to Business Class. My leg room is so big I can extend my leg without bending my knee, lol 🙂 OK, I’m short, but it’s still awesome leg room!
I promised myself in January I wouldn’t PAY for upgrades anymore, to save money. I’ve had 3 flights upgraded for free so far this year and I upgraded 1 with miles. I think it’s good Karma 🙂 Lucky girl I am and grateful.
Missing home already!
That’s GREAT karma! 🙂
hahah. Awesome !
It is awesome… I feel pretty fortunate!
Always my dream to get upgraded…someday… are you heading back to China?? Travel safe!!
Heading back to China. Final 3 months of being an expat. Decided I’ll come home at end of contract in September.
You deserve good karma! 🙂
Thanks, Meg 🙂
Awesome Momma All I have to say is: WEI?! UH UH UH UH HAO HAO HAO UH UH UH HAODA. UH UH. BYE BYE.
LOL, Kira… I’m pulling my hair out ALREADY 😀 11 weeks, 11 weeks, my new mantra… miss you xoxoxo
lucky you! hope your having a great holiday – and you’re still under your goal weight! have an awsome celebration meal!!
Gotta find an amazing celebration meal to have, Shannon… nothing will beat the dinner at Mark and Eric’s… especially here in China!
You make me smile Sandi! Blogging all the way up in the sky like that… 🙂
I thought it was pretty awesome to Sky Blog 🙂 I gave you a virtual HELLO while sitting in JFK… since we were in the same state!
Lucky you! Those look like comfy traveling shoes too – nothing worse than seeing girls dressed to the nines wearing ten inch stilettos for their airport experience… it makes me cringe with referred pain every time I spot one!
I see people in the worse traveling shoes. I always try to dress up (even if it’s jeans and a nice top) and a decent pair of shoes… gets ya upgrades if you’re a frequent flier with the airline 🙂
Now, tell me again your secret for the upgrades! (I had a great time today. Thanks.)
Smiling and being kind to the ticket agents when you are checking in. Dressing up, good shoes! And loyalty… I pretty much fly on the same airlines over and over… they see that and will surprise you with an upgrade at times. Also, by being loyal, I’ve picked up a lot of miles. I never fly for free on those miles… I buy a regular ticket and upgrade with my miles.
