I know seat maps aren't the most reliable indicator of loads, but all 20 J seats show available. If there's no chance of getting any type of offer we'll probably just pay cash outright. But as I have a small orphaned amount of AC miles, I'd rather use those if there;s a chance of getting a buy up anywhere near the difference between the current coach and business price.

If this was answered some where in the TOD thread, mods please merge this there. Thanks guys!
There's been multiple reports of partner ticketed UA metal flights offering TOD buyups at check in. If the inventory levels stay high, you can almost be guaranteed to see one.
