Maybe I should have done this as a POLL ((I’ve never done those, might be fun thing to try for the future, yeah??)) But it seems pretty evenly divided on whether I should give it to DH, Keep it myself, Flip a coin for it, share it 1/2 his turn, half my turn, give it to a military person or an elderly person.
And here I am turning 50 in a few weeks! When do *I* get to be the elderly person? LOL!
((Obviously, not yet!))
We talked about it last night on the way to meet up with Jason and Kim for dinner. He told me to go ahead and keep it. I’m not sure if I will.
Here’s the deal --- I have the air miles, he doesn’t. Free upgrades are based on your frequent flyer status. He doesn’t have as many miles as I do. I had to book our trips separately because we are not returning together. We are flying out at the same time, but he has to return home on Jan 1 – I have to stay til the 4th…and since we have different return times it had to be booked separately.
When they bumped ME up --- that made my exit row seat available to another passenger. I don’t have that seat available to me any more. It’s been taken!
Getting customer service to find us two seats together at this point isn’t an option because DH doesn’t want to give up his exit row seat! I don’t blame him.
If I offer it to a military person, that means I’ll be sitting in a non-exit row seat and still not sitting with DH.
If I want to offer it to the person who now HAS my old seat because they bumped me ---is the only way that DH and I can sit together.
But the best and funniest comment of all came from MY MOTHER!!
LOL!! Isn’t she just a riot?? You know, my biggest fear after reading all the comments, was that I might disappoint several of you if I choose something different than what you suggested. Over such a simple thing, I’m doubting myself!
At this point, I’m leaning towards flipping a coin, giving us each a 50/50 chance at having a first class seat to Dallas. The other person would have the exit row seat, and since this is NOT a large plane, those exit rows are the next best thing.
And as Mama said --- we’ll spend time together on the GROUND :cD
