    Good deal to get the flight upgrade; that makes the trip much nicer. Great win to start, buy yourself and friend something nice to take home.

    You started out strong with the no-traffic ride to the airport, then the amazing and inexpensive upgrade for a fabulous flight, the great rental, no problema check in, getting your money back on free play and then BOOM, a spectacular handpay! I've read few starts to a trip that are better that what you've just experienced.

    Continue on this roll please. :nworthy: Wishing you the best for the rest of your trip!! :thumbsup:
