I am Premiere Silver, but if the Coach award was "XN", then shouldn't the business upgrade be "IN" to be consistent? And will the "IN clear before the "I", and if so, should I have them adjust the reservation?
While you are correct about IN being superior to I class, as a Premier Silver your Economy awards would book into XN and your Business or domestic First into I. You would need to be Platinum or above to waitlist for IN.
