I wonder if this is the start of a new policy where Elite customers will no longer be able to use RUs or Elite Upgrades to have a business class seat guaranteed to other cities as well.
I doubt it very much. But, the day that 365-in-advance confirmation of Elite upgrades is killed, I am gone forever over to other carriers, no question.
