    A few lucky passengers will get free upgrades to BusinessFirst on p.s. flights between JFK and LAX today as part of a promo for the new CBS series Friends with Better Lives.

    And all passengers will receive special, FWBL-branded headphones to keep. :rolleyes:

    I wonder how many seats will be assigned to the promo versus upgrade instruments.

    Top tier PAX might wanna change their flights to tomorrow to ensure upgrades if schedule permits.

    Because sitting in the same cabin as someone who got an upgrade is a problem?? :confused:

    No, because there will be less inventory for an upgrade.

    I'm not sure how a "promotion" is considered a "partnership"[in the sense we've come to know airline partnerships]? Sounds like a one-off not an integrated partnership.

    why not?

    Assuming they were flying on the right airline and had an instrument?
