How do you split that upgrade?

Sure, it is a good problem to have. Two passengers traveling together and only one upgrade clears. It has the potential to be an awkward situation, so what do you do (keeping in mind that you’re in an airport so shooting the hostage probably isn’t a viable solution)?

For me the answer is an easy one. I’ve always tried to give the seat away. Heck, I even give it away some times when I don’t know the other person. The hard part of giving the seat away, however, can be convincing the other person to take it.

One of my fellow bloggers was in a pretty awful car crash a few weeks ago and the rest of us are pitching in to help keep the content flowing on his blog while he recuperates. My guest post on MilesQuest is up today and tells the story of the very first time my wife actually agreed to take the one upgrade we had to share. Give it a read and let me know what you think.
