Was prompting me to pay $40, I guess I had to go back in after booking?

Was nowhere near that for me. May have been because your flight was longer, but I do know that mosaic members get significantly reduced rates for the exit row and upgraded seats.

You think I paid for an upgrade?
You can't even pay 500 points? Talk about cheap. Lol.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

On their longest routes coast to coast, goes for 700 points, plus you get 200 points back on that.

No, only if you're mosaic member.

Mosaic gets points back? What benefit is that?

Oh sorry if not clear, mosaic has the option to use points for an even more space upgrade. Everyone gets 200 points pack for purchasing even more space seat, regardless of status or if card member.

This whole Mosaic thing is pretty cool. Flight to EWR was delayed so when they announced boarding, there were 150 gate lice.

All of the sudden, I was paged, thanked for my loyalty, and given a 5 min head start.

Another 16 months of this will be fine with me.

Nice! I enjoy mosaic a lot too. How are you keeping status, from credit card spend? I have status through 2016 now as part of the status match.

You spent $1350 on B6? Why'd you do that?

As a human, I find this offensive.
