For a couple more weeks we have the ability to upgrade anyone, whether we know them or not, on the same flight as us as long as we have the appropriately coloured paper. Once March 1st roles around the game changes. Es and SEs can nominate 2 and 4 people, respectively, who they can then bestow upgrades on. With paper upgrades I was able to grab that anonymous person in the boarding area, walk up to the podium and potentially get them a ride in the front of the bus. Since I've spent the last year or so primarily travelling alone in J without the need to use certs, it because pretty obvious that this was the best use of my certs. I have to say that it was really cool to see a very deserving (3+ tours in Afghanistan as a sniper) corporal with 21 years in the CF get giddy like a child on his birthday. I've spent a lot of time going through the rules of the eUpgrades system and the process of upgrading within that system. I've yet to figure out how I'm going to be able to replicate these types of upgrades. So my question to all of you is this: is there a way that any one has figured out whereby we can, if we choose, still gift these types of spontaneous upgrades?
