We certainly appreciated the gate attendant at LAX who provided us with a free upgrade to first class. It was an unexpected, but welcome benefit. I only wish I had gotten his name.

I had to wait for 7 hours to for my baggage to be delivered to me. Was not happy about that. But thankful that it was not lost and they delivered to my home.

Not sure why I needed the seat belt extender on my flight from LAX to SJC, since it was needed for the SAT to LAX flight...but the flight attendant was very sweet and provided me with one very discreetly so as to not embarrass me. Love and appreciated that!
