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:

So instead, they annoy them by not presenting them with the offers

YYZ - MSY on a flight pass (M).
Offered $199 at T-24 (still same at T-22).
Aircraft is a CRJ 705 and I am in row 12 window with aisle still empty (probably will fill as people move seats during OLCI)
Absolute price isn't bad but incremental value for this duration is not compelling enough. Already have a MLL pass to burn off that expires Feb 28.

On my return flight MSY-YYZ, Saturday Feb 16, the OLCI upgrade offer was $249 at T-13. (Could have been worth it to have the J meal, as the plane was held 2+ hours on the ground after landing before letting us out at 9:45 vs scheduled 7:30.)

Wow - not much more than the fare difference between Tango and Flex for that route. If they gave 100% miles it would be a no-brainer.
