A few days ago I had to book a last minute trip, and because of my schedule I had to choose a specific flight. First Class was sold out so I knew that I had almost no chance of an upgrade.
When I pick my flights I usually have the option of being more selective, I look for a flight where there are no more than two occupied Main Cabin Extra and/or exit row seats for every one open First Class seat. There are lots of other variables such as type of aircraft, city pair, time of day that influence upgrade odds, but I don’t obsess over it and the 2 to 1 rule of thumb works for me.
Anyway, back to my story. I knew there would be no upgrade, but I didn’t mind; my flight was going to be on a new Boeing Sky Interior 737-800 with Wi-Fi and Main Cabin Extra, and more importantly, I was going to get a chance to try a new snack item that was added to the buy-on-board menu: the Caramel Sea Salt brownie from Dancing Deer Brownie Company!
Last month American started selling the Caramel Sea Salt Square, and because the Upgrade Gods have been kind to me, I haven’t had a chance to try it.
Now, thanks to a sold out First Class cabin, I’ll get my brownie!
This deep, rich, caramel dessert square is drizzled with creamy caramel and sprinkled with authentic Himalayan Pink sea salt. Such a sweet and salty treasure you will not be able to stop at one!
(If the brownie turns out to be as good as the Sea Salt & Caramel Cookies from Jimmy’s Food Store, I’ll never request an upgrade again;)
Look for a review this weekend of the inflight brownie!
