Platinum 2011 F Upgrade Certs Work
Got my 2 Platinum Upgrade Certs this week.
Figured no reason to wait until everyone was using them, so just called the Call Center to try and use the first one for Sunday's flight.
After being on hold for 30 minutes while they figured out how to make them work, they actually upgraded both ends of my flight (inbound to HNL Sun and outbound next week) to First. Seats confirmed.
My read of the rules was that you had to ask within 2 days of each leg so my return wouldn't yet have qualified but at least in this early instance they took both my certs and upgraded both ends of the trip from a time within 2 days of the originating Transpac leg.
Based on the Platinum upgrade cost of $225/leg Y to F, this is a $450 better deal than we got last year.
Now if they would just give us a Chairman's level at 70-75,000 miles with some real perks, I would be a happy camper.

Fine print of platinum upgrade certificates
Trying to decide if it is worth flying a few more segments to reach platinum status. Aside from being able to upgrade only two days prior to travel, what are the other terms/fine print on the upgrade certificates? Booked the HNL-NYC special and would love to fly in F on the way home.
