False choice. Take the early flight and don’t check your bag.

Now if you’re throwing first into the mix I would debate. Especially since I don’t have a family or pet to go home to.

@SC OP Yes. I’m on a 4hr flight every week.

That’s enough time to work and drink a bottle of wine, so yes I’ll take the upgrade. I’m going to cuddle with the points I’m earning and cry myself to sleep when I get home <3

Leave the flights; get a pet

Wait what? Always take the earlier flight. Unless the difference between early and late is like.. 5 minutes??

Interesting though @pwc2 - does an upgrade on the mater flight change things? On a 3-4hr flight?

Is this something that is actually given credit on a resume or would it be a waste of time/money?
