I truly enjoy the complimentary upgrades on USAirways, it is what keeps me loyal to them. A few months ago returning to Phoenix from a non US served city in Texas I flew home on AA. At DFW I asked about upgrading and my AA Advantage account has almost nothing in it because I fly US and UA for everything. Anyway, I paid to upgrade to First and on a DFW-PHX flight on AA metal I had warm nuts, salad, full entree, cookies, snacks and actually was called by my name. I could justify an AA paid upgrade. But when the merger begins to happen with the programs, will we US elites be paying for upgrades on AA metal or having to use miles for the upgrade, or will complimentary upgrades remain domestically?
