Winners: Twenty Three American Systemwide Upgrades Giveaway

Thanks to the generosity of Evan, Joel, Suraj, Spencer, Olman, Susan, Rob, and Amit, we were able to have this giveaway for 23 American Systemwide upgrades.

We selected the winners based on distance of the flights, whether there was confirmed upgrade space and if not, how open the business class section is based on the seat map. We went through all the entries, used our own experience upgrading on American over the last 10+ years as Executive Platinums to come up with the winners.
