    Since it's the Holidays I thought I'd get into the festive spirit and offer the MP United Community [2] Regional Upgrades that I won't be able to use since all I have left this month is an ATL-IAD/IAD-ATL and I'd rather leave it to the Complimentary Premier Upgrade Gods.

    So I will be giving [2] RPUs away to 2 lucky MilePointers. The only caveat is that you have to post a recent travel experience in where you helped a fellow passenger out. So tell us all what happened and I will pick the best two stories and upgrade your itineraries one way.

    I will select the winners tomorrow night (November 18th at 5PM Eastern Time).

    Happy Holidays and Safe Travels!

    I was travelling and helped someone out.

    How's that? ;)

    I gave a solo wheelchair passenger my companion upgrade....anonymously. Told the gate agent to upgrade her, but to tell her an anonymous guardian angel did the trick. She was elderly...I think she was flying to meet up with a sick adult-child. She cleared and was gushing with happiness.

    I noticed an elderly woman who had difficulty walking had a seat in the back of the plane. I got a CPU on a flight from IAD to DEN on 11/5 and when I walked on the plane told the flight attendant that I wanted to give an upgrade to this woman, described her, and when she walked on to the plane he escorted her to 2F. The flight attendant was kind enough to give me an aisle seat in the exit row. He told me when I was leaving that she was quite appreciative.

    I am not sure how helpful it was, but I showed a coworker who was a 1000 miles short of booking a domestic flight how buying his wife flowers would help him get his award ;)

    I'm taking my wife to Las Vegas in a few weeks (that's where we met 3 years ago). Would live to surprise with a seat in F.

    My Silver status doesn't get us CPU'd very often.

    Lol

    I gave colpuck a bunch of drink chits the other day. I like to think of this not as helping out colpuck, but helping out the other passengers on his flight who shouldn't have been subjected to a sober colpuck.

    Nice gesture that someone will appreciated.

    Another option would be to call and have your RPUs extended to Jan 2013. This seems to be a fairly available option (and maybe unintended) of the new expiration policy for GPU/RPUs.

    Being a single flyer most of the time I can't even count the times I have changed seats so couples can sit together. And in all classes of service.
