    Not easy is it?? I lived in CVG for the past 2.5 years before I got relocated to SFO area (East bay) and i miss my direct flights, even if they were limited by the cutbacks in CVG.

    OTOH, being a non-hub based flier means it's easier to accumulate MQM's and the upgrades come easily. Even my wife, who fluctuates between FO and GM, gets a lot of upgrades. (and if I'm upgraded and she isn't, she still sits up front)

    That is nice of you! And I agree... although my coworkers think I am crazy to go SFO-SLC-SAN or SFO-LAX-SAN rather than a easy direct because that is all that is Delta offers. However, I remind them that my automatically upgraded seat is still cheaper than a Business Select Fare on Southwest... and that usually quiets them down... :D

  15. SFO-based platinum! That sounds difficult to maintain compared to UA or even AA.

    There are advantages to being a non-hub based flier. Upgrades are easy, and you automatically get multiple segments/extra eqm's on every trip. :)

    It is.. let me tell you.. I was cvg based for the past 2.5 years and moved out here in November. Now I have to do silly things like fly SFO-SLC-SAN or SFO-LAX-SAN rather than flying direct on WN, VX, or UA to maintain my DL status...[​IMG]

    The things we do to keep status.
