Enjoy the last couple of hours of status!

Ah, it’s that time of the year again, the day which you either love or hate, depending on how much you flew last year. Those that flew a lot last year should notice that upgrades will be just a little easier starting tomorrow, and those that didn’t fly a lot last year are probably spending the evening drinking away their sorrows (for those that enjoy flying), or partying out of excitement of not having to fly as much anymore!

While I rarely notice a difference in the beginning of March as far as a decrease in the number of elites, I do notice that January and February seems to have a lot of top tier elites, at least at United. I’ve had pretty good luck over the past year or so with upgrades, so I don’t particularly feel the need to hope upgrades get easier, but I do always enjoy less competition!

So the moral of the story is that I hope everyone’s happy with their status tomorrow morning (for those of us that participate in programs with calendar year status expiring the end of February), and if not, start flying! I almost have enough flights booked to requalify for 1K on United for 2009, so it might be time to go and explore the dAArkside and maybe pursue Executive Platinum. We’ll see…
