OK had a IAH-CLT trip planned for a while (going to NASCAR race). Got the email this am saying I've been upgraded. Due to truck issues I had to fly from ATL to Houston on Tuesday (the tickets were at my house) and got upgraded on that flight also. True, both are/were on RJ's and not a 787 but, a seat up front is still a seat up front. Guess i should enjoy them as i won't requal silver this year. Unless i do a major IAH-ORD-HkG and back in business class in Jan and Qual as a birthday gift to myself.
