1. I got spoiled over the summer months.  Even as a lowly Delta Silver Medallion, my upgrades were clearing like clockwork.  The kids are back in school, and the big Medallions are back in the air.  I really don’t like coach all that much, even on short flights.
  2. I’m going on a diet.  The only widebody I want to see is a 777, not my reflection in the mirror.  Impetus for this: see random musing # 1.
  3. If this makes me seem snooty, so be it.  I can’t imagine having to fly even a minimal amount without some kind of elite status.  If I’m ever without status, I’ll be a Southwest customer before the sun goes down.
