I have two 48 hour one-class upgrade E-coupons which I will not be using.

 

They expire February 29, 2016.

 

First two posts/PM, by time posted, will receive them.

Usually only used on the NEC.  Upgrade from coach to business class on a regional or upgrade from business class to first class on Acela.

Also on most corridor services (SJ, PS, Cascades, Midwest, etc...) and Downeaster, upgrade from coach to BC - usually no more than 12 hours before departure.
Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

I don't mean to nag, but do you still have the pass?  I saw a DM notification but could not open anything. It may not have been from you, but I was confused.  If you don't have the pass anymore, just disregard this message and sorry for bothering you.

Sorry for the delay in responding. The upgrade coupon is yours.  I'll PM the e-number.

 

That's it, they're gone. Thanks for putting them to use.

It seems I have one more 48 hour upgrade coupon available.  It's valid for just two more weeks-the 29th of February.

 

First PM takes it.

 

Mike

 

 

Edit: This one is spoken for, that's it.

 

Thanks
