Subject: Re: Best use of frequent flyer points

I have made a decision to use my FF points for a first class upgrade. I am over six feet tall and I am sick and tired of flying about with my knees pressed against the back of the seat in front of me. And, if you only upgrade to 1st class, you still earn miles for the flight.

The other use is as suggested previously, for last-minute flights where a low cost fare is not possible.

Let me add that I am very unhappy that American Airlines has discontinued their extra room in coach plan. I would have gladly paid an extra 10-15% to get more leg room. I believe that the extra seats reduced seating by that percentage in most planes.
