Well, looks like no one could use my upgrades nor those generously offered by Dave. Too bad, but at least it looks like everyone will be home for the holidays from all of the comments that I received. Thanks to everyone who commented.
And now for a giveaway that I know someone will take me up on. I have quite a few free drink coupons on United (and also usable on Continental) that expire soon. Anyone who wants some can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with thier address and I’ll get them in the mail to you. Merry Christmas…Happy Hanukah…Happy Festivus.. or whatever you are celebrating this season!
