It the risk of being summarily flamed and flogged (probably rightly so), what is the trick to get oneself upgraded?
When I was about 13 or 14 (1997/8) I was bumped into the F-cabin of a NW
DC-10-x (probably 30 at the time) from DTW
at the gate* and that was when I was when my entire wardrobe was shorts/t-shirts/flip-flops**
That was the best, most comfortable flight of my life, even if I didn't get a window... I was sorry to see it end. Probably one of the major reasons that NW
is my favorite.***
Now, at 20, my wardrobe is entirely business casual/upper end business casual, I'm nice as can be to the CSRs ('cuz you folks deal with a lot of c*** from pax that you don't deserve)... and haven't seen a F seat since that time in '97.
What did I do to get myself upgraded back then? I wasn’t even a WorldPerks member at the time (now I have my # memorized)/
- Speaking of DTW
, It's a little unnerving to walk by an abandoned gate and see a WorldSpan terminal still logged in...]
* - No one told me that they were doing it, they just took my ticket (originally booked 20C) and handed me a boarding pass for 6C. Quite a suprise when I got on.
** - Hey, I live in SoCal, what can I say.
*** - Well, that and the fact that Mesaba/Pinnacle is the only way to get to PLN.
