Birthday Surprise from British Airways

Last May I was headed out on a tour of stately homes and gardens in Britain. The travel company had booked coach flights on British Airways from Chicago O'Hare to London Heathrow. When I checked in, the agent did all the necessary work and then gave me back passport, ID, and ticket and said "Have a good flight, and by the way I put you in First Class." "First Class?" I gasped. "Right-oh," she said, "I noticed from your passport that it's your birthday today and we happen to have the room. Happy Birthday from British Airways!"
