AAFF: Wish me luck!

Taking my gf to San Francisco this weekend. She thinks that we're going there to say goodbye to my friend and his gf as they are getting ready for a permanent move to Croatia. That part is true.

What she doesn't know is that I will propose to her on Sunday evening.....

AA will get us there in first class and Hilton SF Square Union already upgraded us to a King 1 bedroom suite. The res manager was wonderful this morning as I explained the situation. I booked a regular room with a request to Exec Level room or Jr. Suite upgrade. He bypassed both of my requests and put us in a 2 room suite with a balcony overlooking the bay for the price of the reg room! He also promised a "surprise" manager treat on Sunday evening. He wouldn't tell me what it will be but he did tell me that it won't be just champagne??? Thanks Hilton SF!

Anyway, wish me luck!

You got it! I'm delighted for you. I'm quite sure you'll get the right answer, after all you come with all those FF miles!

Thanks!

She will get her first AA miles too!

I signed her up for a Platinum challenge which will almost be completed with this 1 trip. She will get ~8000 points and will only need ~2000 more in next 2.5 months. We will be flying to Chicago next month so that will take care of that.

She is somewhat confused about my "mileage obsession" but perhaps she will "see the light" when she becomes Platinum...

Congratulations. Watch out, she may catch your obsession and decide to earn her own million miles.

Thanks everybody!

lynnejoel1015,

actually you'll have to wait until Tuesday for a report. We're leaving tomorrow morning and coming back Tuesday afternoon.

Can't wait. Also anxious to hear what the manager's surprise is going to be.

I bet you'll be planning some honeymoon trip!

Surely AAFF there will be wireless internet access in your suite. We expect to be third in line for a news update, after your parents and hers.

AAFF - Now if we can just work on bringing you bAAck from the dAArk side, and over to UA, all will be well!!
Seriously, best wishes to you, I hope she appreciates the effort you've obviously put into this.
BTW: When will we hear the 'same' news over on that "other" board that FF'ers frequent?

LOL, Dave! I was thinking the same thing (about the other board).

Dave,

I really wouldn't know where to post on Flyertalk?

I only frequent AA and HHonors fora and neither is really applicable for this thread.

Fodor's is more of a general travel forum and more personal, that's why I posted here.

AAFF: "I really wouldn't know where to post on Flyertalk?"

If you're OMNI-enabled, and I suspect you are, that'd be a good start. If you want lots of folks to 'join' you when you propose on Sunday nite - you could try "Community", and if nothing else, I suspect a post on either TravelBuzz or just the AA board will bring lots of well wishes.

Best, Dave

If she says yes, how many Frequent Flyer miles will she need to have in her "dowry."
