I agree with all of this -- and note that this is potentially a giant downgrade for UA Gold, if they copy DL and begin waitlisting E+ "upgrades" -- except for this statement. The E+ access is coded right into the fare rules. If you buy one of these fares, you should be guaranteed E+ access regardless of what changes UA may later make.

If they move forward with this, I expect to see the Instant Upgrade benefit change. As it stands, on routes where you can find PZ space (PN for 1K/GS), this will likely be the cheapest way to confirm F at booking, with the caveat that you might end up in Y in SDC/IRROPS.
