I was upgraded to first class on two legs of my latest trip. As a middle aged man, I do like the larger seat, space to stretch out a little. When I first started getting occasional upgrades last year I felt a little out of place. I have gotten over that. I am on my best behavior (mom might be watching) but I feel that I have earned my place there. And I have have, I have taken about 25 trips on American Airlines in the past 20 months. I have already earned "Gold" status on American Airlines for 2019. I won't make it to Platinum unless something unexpected comes up and I have 5 or 6 more trips this year that I don't have scheduled.
In first class, the airlines still serve food. Real food, and drinks. I am not a big drinker, and I was renting a car in Texas so I skipped the booze on the outbound flight. But I did have a Coke Zero and warm nuts. There is something about the warmed nuts that is special. I should have warm nuts more often.
Have you had warm nuts recently?
