I was upgraded twice to 1st class by luck! Loved both incidents! First one back in 1998 from BXB-VIE
on Malaysian. My moms friend had booked me on the last minute, and when we got to the airport, they told me that sorry, my seat was taken!! But then the agent asked me if I would mind taking another seat, I was like sure, whatever, I hadn't even picked a seat!! Next thing you know, while boarding the plane, the FA
looked at my pass and smiled and said this way sir and I could not believe the spiral stairs up to the 1st class! I tell you guys, it was lots of fun just me, 2 rather old folks who were nice and pretty much slept all the way to ZRH
, and then I stayed on as the only passenger in the cabin to VIE
with the 2 very nice fag on board of a 747-300, chatted and ate chocolate pudding, with variety of fresh berries!
The second incident happened just last summer on a DL
flight from LAX
with a change over in SLC
. While seated to be called up for boarding, my name was called! I went up to the counter, the agent took my boarding pass and tore it up!!! Then gave me a new one and said I think you'll like this one better, seat 5A
!!! It was a short flight on a DL
757, but hey, it was a nice surprise!
