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:

AC fessed up a while back (but I can't remember where right now) that it was a programming issue and they'd fixed it.

This is good. Glad to hear that this glitch has been fixed.

If I am #16 on the waitlist and I really want to upgrade, I can now "jump the queue" to grab those seats if I see the price is right.

A friend of mine flying YYZ-YVR on 151 tonight claims he saw an LMU offered at $98. I told him this is either a mistake or he was misreading what the charge was for. He used the words "Executive Class" which makes me think he probably misread the number. I told him he should be kicking himself for the rest of the month for not taking it (if it was truly $98). Can anyone check the loads the flight went out with? I'm thinking it's too good to be true.

Exact same thing, on the same flight, but the following day.

YUL-LGA AC752 T+ LMU $189+tax or 6 eUpg, T-23.5.
Declined.

Had to reprint my BP at the kiosk, LMU $209+tax or 6 eUpg.

OpUp at the gate "for weight and balance" :-)
3 open seats in J out of 9

AC131 YOW-YYC for tomorrow. $748 from T+ Q class. J2C2, plenty of Y availability.

$748?!? For 4 hours in a jungle jet? Are they on glue?

The price of denying those top tier customers who are patiently waiting on the upgrade list isn't cheap in this case I guess.

I'm flying on 755 tomorrow, and was not offered a LMU. Looks like exec is full.
