    I have 3 United Red Carpet passes that expire on October 31, 2012. I've tried to give them away and no one I know seems to have any United flights planned. I got them free when United was doing a giveaway in LA last year and I really hate the idea of these going to waste...so, does anyone have a flight before Oct. 31 and can use 'em? I will mail them to you... :)

    Welcome JanaW. That was very thoughtful of you. It's easy to forget about these valuable goodies if we can't use them ourselves. Acts such as yours make this more than just a place to come and complain. (Something I'm quite guilty of. ;))

    I don't drink alcohol, but I keep my drink coupons with me at all times and give them away to people I meet who might enjoy them. I recently sat next to a guy in F whose S.O. was stuck in coach. They were a nice young couple, and she joked that he could bring her a drink later. I gave him a coupon to take back to her, and you would have thought I was Santa Clause from the way they appreciated it. We FFers take these things for granted, but the general public who cumulatively really finance our over-entitledness really appreciate an unexpected perk. I enjoy giving the stuff away at least as much as the recipients enjoy the surprise gift.

    They were about 30 years my juniors, and I didn't really feel like starting a flight-long conversation, but I kinda thought the same thing at first. Upon further thought, though, I thought of many possible scenarios where he could have ended up there with her in coach. They may have had an upgrade RT and split the benefit. Maybe they flipped a coin for it. Maybe it was because he was about 6'1" and she was about 5'4". Who knows?

    I'm no Dr. Phil. I have a few exes who I wish I hadn't pampered so well. :D

    My girlfriend is gonna be stuck in Toronto for five hours on October 3 and we sure could have used one then. (if there are any at YYZ). But a generous offer nonetheless.

    As long as it's not the gift that keeps on giving ;).

    I saw some lounges have rules that state you can only be inside for a max of 3 hrs. Not sure if that is enforced or not.
