I just got off the phone with United rep and was told that itís not possible to waitlist for award seats, itís only possible as part of an upgrade. I know that last year I was able to waitlist for more convenient CO award flight in X with no problems; I think they even allowed me to get waitlisted for two different flights on the same day and I didnít have status with neither UA nor CO.
I was just wait listed on fare bucket (IN) for a flight from BOS-IAD, which is the first leg of a BOS-IAD-NRT-TPE flight, where the rest of the itinerary had confirmed Saver First seats. Does anyone know when the award wait list starts to clear? Is it dependent on status (I'm 1K, my wife is Silver, we're traveling together but on different record locators)?
