This year, I'm hardly ever on NW itself, only on Mesaba and Pinnacle, but will never the less re-up my Platinum status.
|Quoting DeltAirlines (Reply 1):|
Wow, that's quite a bit of flying on the regionals and maintaining Platinum...at least on Mesaba you'd have the chance to upgrade on the Avros
|Quoting JCS17 (Reply 7):|
Nothing is worse than those Pinnacle CRJs that are popping up on routes like DFW-MSP... 2 hrs. 45 mins. of pure unadulterated hell.
|Quoting Goodmanr (Reply 8):|
ewr to msp on CO is sometimes regional, sure its an erj which i find more comfortable than a crj, but it's a long long flight, and add in taxi delays in EWR!!! i try to only take this when the time is much better than the NW flights or NW flight are booked...
|Quoting JCS17 (Reply 9):|
Just as long as I can snag 1A on the CO-Ex ERJ, I'm very content. Otherwise, if I can grab an "A" seat, I'm moderately satisfied. Yep, CO throws ERJs on longer flights than DL, UA, or NW, but overall, it's a lot better experience than being stuck on CRJ for more than 2.5 hours. Besides that, CO will actually give you a free (and rather generous, compared to other airlines) snack on those flights, which is always appreciated.
|Quoting DL4EVR (Reply 12):|
Why is it so much more difficult? DL, NW & CO all have the same upgrade windows.
