Long story short, after spending 10 days away on the west coast, Kevin was due to fly home from SNA tomorrow morning and arrive back in the evening. However, upon check-in, he had the option for a no-fee flight change and switched his return flight to a red-eye flight leaving tonight and arriving very early in the morning as a surprise for me.
Although there’s only a 12 hour difference in his return, you should have seen the ear-to-ear smile on my face after hearing that he would be coming home early; it totally made my day. Sure, all of the other benefits of having status are fabulous, but when one small benefit can truly make your heart smile, it definitely makes you appreciate the little things in life. :)
Does anyone have any similar stories or can relate?
