new tool for frequent flyers

As a frequent flyer myself, I wanted to let everyone who flies a lot to know about MySeatFinder (Travel Tools | Find better airline seats). Lately it seems that I don't get upgraded as often as I used to. Flying out of Mpls (formerly NWA territory) there is just a lot more competition for upgrades. I was a beta user of this site and even though the user interface needs work, the service is very cool! It basically does what I used to spend a lot of time doing...searching for a better seat and upgrading myself as they become available. It does it automatically. Full disclosure: I got a benefit for being a beta user, but I wouldn't be touting it if it didn't really work as told. They've still got more airlines to add, but new ones are coming online every month.

Since NineEleven all of my overseas travel has been on NWA now Delta. When I was flying overseas with NWA I did get quite a few FREE upgrades to Business Class on the long runs. With Delta - nada - nothing on the US to Japan segment and on the other segments from Japan to other countries like the Philippines and Thailand. Same for the return routes. (Delta also changed the bonus miles with a Platinum Card from 125% with NWA to 100% with Delta, same as a Gold Card.)

Like with NWA I still get free upgrades within the US almost all the time with a Platinum Card. I still prefer NWA over Delta, I think NWA had a better website to navigate and when I call the Elite Service Desk Delta is not as friendly or accommodating as NWA was. But Delta is flying now and NWA is not!
