For the first time in a year (and even then, that was the first time in 7 years..) my cross-country upgrade didn’t clear and I flew in coach. And it was Delta coach, it makes me realize just how much those extra 3 inches of legroom on United matter, though even that’s not pleasant because width is just as important.
I had an aching neck since much earlier in the morning, and boy coach didn’t help. It was a 757, no onboard internet. And live TV is boring because, well, most TV is boring. Though if HBO’s Big Love or Entourage showed new-ish episodes I might’ve paid the $2.
Instead I happily had downloaded the latest Upgd Podcast, so that helped kill half an hour.
Fortunately my return upgrade cleared, I don’t think I can do this again for awhile.
