thanks! We were happy We were 43 days out at assignment. As for how I knew we were 7A, even when you book a GTY, it will still say a category beside it. This is how you know what your MINIMUM is. So, I knew that at very least I was going to get a 7A, and then you could get better, but never less than that- clear as mud? I was ok with a 7A because the price was ridiculously low. However, I am very happy to be moved to a 5A!
