What were the circustances of you first upgrade ever?
I was 11 years old when my father and I took a trip around Europe. Our itinerary was:
Year, 1982. (Not sure if Milan was MXP
or something else then).
When we got to Logan, the line was stretching out the door of terminal E. My father went to the empty business class line and asked if it would be ok to check in there. The agent said, "Because you asked so nicely, we will upgrade you to Club World."
(Not sure what ticket fare we had).
The ride was great. It was my first trip across the pond, and I enjoyed the service tremendously. Remember those packs of mini sized playing cards BA
used to give out? Got a couple of sets of those.
Since then, I've flown C and F plenty. But the first time was the sweetest.
What are some of the other memories of first time upgrades?
