OK, my turn for a little holiday cheer. I have a couple of Systemwide Upgrades on United/ Continental that I want to give away to a deserving military member or thier family. Entrants can post replies to this blog post on why they best deserve an upgrade when flying to see their loved ones this holiday season and I’ll pick the best to apply an upgrade for. You can talk about a service member (SM) coming home domestically to see their families or those deployed overseas. As much as I would like to upgrade a military memebr serving in Iraq or Afghanistan, the reality is that they probably won’t have time for me to upgrade them. Usually, the service member tells SATO where they want to go and the SATO office in Kuwait issues the ticket within a couple of hours and the SM is on the bus to Kuwait International in a few hours. So the chances are a lot better if I simply upgrade the spouse or parents heading to meet thier SM.
Post away and I will select a winner on 7 Dec. Remember, it will have to be a UA or CO flight. Good luck and happy holidays!
