    Received my check-in email this morning, and when I attempted check in they offered me an upgrade to United First, for $169 for the Newark->Las Vegas leg of my trip tomorrow....

    Fastest time I ever clicked an accept button;)

    With the free booze, there is a 90% chance I'll end up curled up naked in seat 5F by the time I touch down in LAS. I pity the poor LIMO driver and check in staff @ the Cosmo, "twitchy as a crack whore" (thanks BeeeJaaaayyy) is a mild understatement ;) ....BRING IT ON...been a long 6 months!

    Dierks Bentley ... without the heartache. lol

    Way to go!!!

    Man, I love those. I once upgraded to "first class" in a freakin' Embraer from SBA to PHX ... it saved me five bucks over what woulda been my luggage fee and I got a cup of Joe while the plane was loading. lol But seriously, kicking up on a long leg is awesome.

    Wow, that is a great price for an upgrade on a near transcontinental flight on a major airline. Slam dunk. The price of domestic first class tix has really come down in the past few years to the point that I often pay it now rather than risk an upgrade.

    Interesting, I have seen some good transatlantic business fares on Air Canada but never tried the airline.

    Yep! I love the line too! Been feeling that way all week...I'm on 72-hour countdown...

    (PS - I'm sure hoping to get the 'check-in upgrade' opportunity from United as well for my return flight on Tuesday. Booked in 1st on American flying out...coach on United for my return.)
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    The only thing better than a trip to Vegas, is a trip to Vegas in first class. :)
