    I have five more, no rest for the weary. :)


    Today's run went smoothly. Had a few MRers on the way out (turns out they were on some flights early January ) and I think there were 8, including myself, on the way back.
  2. beaktor Silver Member

    So how did you tell a MR from normal passengers? Secret handshake? :)

    No rest indeed for you... wow, 5. I just got 3 more booked, one from AUS and two from SFO. Let's hope they're uneventful...

    Well if they are on your outbound flight, it's pretty easy to bust them. :D. I also knew someone on the return who pointed out the rest of them.

    It's also pretty easy to spot them when you have seen them on multiple flights during the month! :)

    And yes, there is a secret handshake...please don't tell me no one told you about it or shared it with you...:rolleyes:

    Does anyone know if a sweep including 1/29 flights has run?

    I hope not. My flights from 2/4 haven't posted yet. Though it should happen some time today -- right?

    Had a narrow brush with Y today. They came and got me from the exit row. :). Not that I had actually expected an UG today, but that's the closest I've come to a miss and TEQM is over. :eek: :)

    How funny! Wonder if the clappers were more FT/MPers.

    Anyhow - I saw ya. :) I was sitting at #1 on the list and watching the seatmap to see if anyone no-showed. The ug was a complete surprise as I never actually saw it open up. Did you end up getting the middle seat free?

    Were you on a turn, or on a 'real' trip?

    Ended up with a free middle - not quite as nice as an UG but still good. I was turning...the beginning of two days and 3 RTs. I was riding my 2010 creds and would have EXPired March 1. All is good now as I have qualified for EXP in 2012.

    I had waited for everyone to board and I moved from 5th to 1st on the list. I paused at the gate to see if they would give me the "nod", but no such luck. I am glad to see they are watching out for us and proactively putting us important people up front!

    Sounds like you didn't fubar in sfo then. :). Last time weather happened in sfo for me, I almost had a night at dfw. Made it back in time for my regularly scheduled flight but not the earlier one I was hoping for.

    Over my 10+ DFW/SFO RTs I ran into quite a bit of weather delay, but tried to plan them all so I was returning on the same aircraft. It saved my bacon more than once.

    So far I had 8 Lax-ord that was uneventful and 2 lax-dfw that I got either delayed or cancelled, rebooked. Guess it just my luck with ord. Was able to duck through both of the snow storms. One more this Sat and I will be an officially EXP

    Did anyone got their bonus point from last week run? Normally AA would do a bonus pt sweep every tuesday but seems like they havent done it this week, unless AA missed mine, which happened b4.

    I didn't get mine but my run was on Sunday. I'm waiting to see what next week holds.
  14. beaktor Silver Member

    In the excitement of trying to grab a few more EQM's before the double expired... I booked two SFO-ORD round trips a few weeks back for.... today and tomorrow.

    Not sure what I am thinking but it's in the middle of the crazy snow in Chicago. Right now, I'm at the gate at SFO and the flight is delayed 35 minutes and counting. I definitely don't want to stranded in Chicago since it appears they cancelled a few flights this morning and all returns are sold out.

    I'm sure there'll be a story out of this!
