1) Upgrade my son and my tickets/seats to business, using my husband's United miles? (i.e. does he need to be on the reservation?) I do have enough miles myself, but prefer to use my husband's miles first.
2) Request an upgrade for the return flight only? We have not departed for our trip and only care to upgrade for the return segment. It gives me an error whenever I try to search for upgrade availability for the return flight.
1) The miles can come from any account.
2) SAUA is technically only for one segment, so by default upgrading each segment is how it works.

Keep in mind only Y/B/K is eligible on BR and there must be upgrade availability (consensus is Z bucket and availability is not listed online - must call into BR to check).
