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:

2009 LMU Summary

It can be a bit difficult to find what your looking for in here. So I compiled a chart version of the LMU listed. This way you can see the minimum, the average, as well as the maximum paid.

Below is my excel spreadsheet for 2009.

A few assumptions:
- I didn't include LMU that were clearly in a foreign currency, an approximation, or clearly couldn't be right.
- As LMU typically seem to be the same in both directions, I didn't list them both ways. If you want BOS-YYZ, look at YYZ-BOS.
- As I assume we're all here for miles, miles and more miles. I assume most people are interested in T+ fares and didn't add in those that were T fares.
- I didn't take in to account any KVS data. The amounts don't seem to very depending on number of J seats available anyways. They vary so little that the min/max/avg calculations don't serve much purpose on most routes.

Unless people see this as utterly useless, or not pertinent to the thread. I'll work on a presentable one for 2010 and 2011 as well. As formatting this online was a pain.
