Gate Upgrades Are Better Than No Upgrades

Happiness is a gate upgrade to F on our flight to Baltimore today!

Even before flying SEA-SFO this morning, we knew there was only one vacant seat in F. It appears that the gate agents upgraded us sometime after the flight became "under gate control." We showed up at the gate, saw our names on the cleared list, and picked up our new boarding passes.

The plane was an Airbus 320, which has only 12 F seats, not a lot for a transcon between SFO and BWI. The service was great, the food was decent, and we even enjoyed the movie, The Backup Plan.

We're now staying at the Airport Sheraton Four Points on a great rate, and plan to take the light rail into downtown Baltimore tomorrow before flying back Saturday. We're also keeping a weather eye on Hurricane Earl.

It's been a long day, but a good day to fly.
