Here is the text of the email — note that I’m adding strikeout text where I think it belongs since the text as copied by reader Mark didn’t include it: You’ve been exclusively selected to…

Best options for domestic first class awards

Domestic first class is nicer than coach, but, in most cases, it’s hardly something to write home about.  Usually you’ll simply get a bigger seat and a few snacks and drinks, or a meal if you’re lucky.  If you’re really lucky, you might find yourself on an internationally configured aircraft flying a domestic route.  On these you’ll generally find large business class seats with electronic controls to adjust the recline all the way to flat…
