B6 even more space seats have got to be one of the best consistently available mileage deals in the game.

600 or 700 B6 vs. $55 = 7.9 to 9.2 cpp, and that's before 10% (or more) rebate, equaling 8.7 to 10.2 cpp.

That's only for Mosaic.

No reason to waste points on it when they'll always give them to you for free at the airport (also as Mosaic)
Don't ask stupid questions and you won't get stupid answers

That's what I do when I personally fly, but in this case it's not me flying ;)

Considering that other airlines offer this for free with status, the value is somewhat watered down IMO.

its such a minute amount why risk it when you can confirm at booking? Especially if traveling with a family
