Airline Upgrades


A month or two ago Delta Airlines anointed me as a Silver Medallion member of its SkyMiles program. Not a bad deal, as it made me eligible for free upgrades to first class seating from time to time. I got such an upgrade Sunday between Atlanta and New Orleans.

The problem, of course, is keeping them down on the farm after they've seen Paree! In other words, it's pretty hard to go back to coach class once you have a taste of first class. Today, my first segment back to Atlanta from the Big Easy I was one away on the upgrade list from great comfort. And now on the connection to Hartford, I narrowly missed the upgrade again.

Then again, as Louis CK points out to those who whine about air travel, remember you are sitting in a chair in the sky! So no complaints.
