LAX-ORD using a CR1

It wouldnt let me use the cr1, So I called reservations, seems that .bomb had applied the CR1 to RIC-ORD-SAN , which of course might be logical except that I had requested that 500s be used for those flights, since the only way for me to upgrade all three (i only have 14 500s) was to use 6 500s for the first flight, 6 for LAX-HNL and then the CR1 for HNL-ORD... now if they would all clear , id be really happy...

I haven't had trouble changing upgrade instruments at the gate. As for having "only" 14 e500s, I dunno, I have a hard time having much more empathy for someone in that position than I do for Joe the Plumber making who's apparently making $250k+ /year and complaining he might have to pay more in taxes.
