So we can all get a handle on how they are going to work in the real world, how much they will cost, et c.

Post flight, date, route, original fare basis (T, T+, Lat, etc), and if known, seat inventory (i.e. J9, C7, Z5, I3). If you do upgrade, please also let us know how many empty J seats there were in the cabin, if any. And if you were considering a certificate upgrade, why or why you didn't opt for the LMU.

It would be helpful if this thread could be limited to "just the facts" and no discussion, which could be posted elsewhere. That should make this thread more useful for everyone.

Should anyone want to discuss LMU's further please post in this thread:

HNL-YVR ON 26th Jan at T -18 hrs it was $269....

Accepted. It was worth it (I think) even in an "Amigo".

Thats quite a difference compared to what I was offered on the YYC-HNL outbound leg ($779)

(No offer made for YOW-YYZ.) I accepted. For a 5 hr flight on an XM'd 767, I'll take it. Makes for an expensive omelet, but flight credits aren't usable until 1-March.

For my return leg ANU-YYZ on a 319 (or maybe a 320), there was no offer made during OLCI. At the check-in desk I asked and the price would have been $369 (no thanks). The guy was working from a preprinted sheet and I don't think it had anything to do with actual loading on the flight. J had one or two open seats IIRC.

If Mrs PB had been traveling with me - no chance not taking that offer for me

Feb 4 AC110 YYC - YYZ $299 from T+ Accepted
AC462 YYZ - YOW $99 T+ Declined


Feb 9 AC8518 YOW - YUL $99 T+ Declined
AC187 YUL - YYC $369 T+ Declined


In reading the thread, YUL seems to be a "premium" location for LMU prices. YYZ-YYC is only about 15 minutes shorter, but is more often at $299, which I was willing to pay. But $369 is too much for E90 service. I'll check again tomorrow AM and see if the price has moved into a more acceptable range.

R=3, so there is some space available....

Forgot to post this:

1/11
YOW-YYZ: $99 Declined (I had a beer and a snack in the lounge for free instead)
YYZ-NRT: $849 Accepted (as I had an immediate connection NRT-BKK this is the only way I made it through the day and I billed the customer anyway!)

1/22
NRT-YYZ Not offered Would have contemplated it.

I've never been offered a price to upgrade at OLCI for any of my flights...does this happen when you OLCI on the AC website just at the 24 hr before departure mark? Or do they email you a notification or something?

This happens at OLCI if R>0. I don't recall if thie LMU offer happens starting at T-24 hours, or "same day" (i.e. after 12:00am local departure time).

I think it must vary. Some seem to report the offer at 24hr. I was hoping for LMU on an overnight YYZ-CDG flight. I kept checking but it didn't appear until 4hr before the flight.. then I completed OLCI
