I just made select level for the first time. I had a question on the upgrade coupon. I live in the midwest, so no acela. My only upgrade would be just business class. Or is a roomette a possibility?
I wish it were so, but Amtrak would be stupid to allow upgrade coupons to be used for roomettes. Acela First class costs ~$130 more. A roomette can cost $200+.Good point about NEC bias in the AGR Program! (Same thing with the Lounge Passes)I end up giving mine to AU friends that live and travel on the NEC since there is No Business Class on the Trains I ride regularly nor Lounges for Hundreds of Miles!!
Perhaps Anthony and his AGR Team will consider either changing the ridiculous 12 Hour Rule or give them REAL VALUE ( like in Acela FC) by letting those of us in Flyover/ One Train a Day Country Upgrade to Sleepers!!!!!??????
And Pigs will Fly!!!!!
