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 763 (EWR-YYZ) $139 at self-checkin. Accepted. (At the time I checked in, it was an hour and a half or more before the flight, and only three of the nine Executive Class seats were taken, and then four with mine. Also, Economy was extremely dead as well.)

AC 606 (YYZ-YHZ) $199 at self-checkin. Declined.


Not bad offers, since I only paid about $150 after taxes, for EWR-YHZ, eh?
