After a tortured year of travel as a Silver, I just received my promotion to Gold. Let me tell you, being Gold may not feel like much until to you lose it. Check-in lines with zillions of amateurs and boarding in Zone 1 has been a difficult pill to swallow. Thankfully I've been Pre-check 100% of the time, but still I've had to hang my head in shame, until now. This morning I woke up to my promotion letter, not really, but it was a thrill to see Sky Priority back. I am never going to take it for granted, again!
