I have never been a huge fan of paying hundreds of dollars more just to travel business select. A nice round trip is good enough for me nowadays, and as long as the round trip doesn't have to stop off at any other locations, that's a plus. I recently traveled from Kansas City, Mo. to Oakland, Ca. and I must say it was smooth sailings. It took four hours and it was a straight non-stop trip. Do you prefer Business select of is the basic airfare good enough?
