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:

$369.

I accepted this same route at $369 a few days ago (morning flight). Anyone know if the LMU price is lower for non-pod aircraft on this route?

Update - never mind, searched the thread history, it looks like it's roughly the same regardless of config.

I think I recall seeing an LMU on this route for $299.00 during the summer on a 320, but I could be getting that mixed up with a YEG-YYZ flight.

T-22 hours:
Aeroplan Reward:
1) yvr-yyc: $149.00 - declined : row 12 on an e90 will do the job just fine for 5 foot tall me!
1) yyc - yyz: $299.00 - declined, even though it's the redeye. (see above: being small makes flying in economy not suck as much as it could).

February 23, YYZ-MCO, Tango Plus S, R>0, $249, declined.

This is more expensive than previous posts in this thread. Is there an upward-increasing trend for most LMU's? The longest flights in the network (YYZ-HKG, YVR-SYD) had historically been slightly below $1000.

YYZ-YWG on a Tango E fare, was about $270+tax. You could of simply purchased a Z fare for the LMU + the original fare. Obviously I didn't accept...
