Have been getting upgraded lately so not sure what's typical, but have heard at LAX: A as in Ariana Grande, B as in Britney Spears, C as in Christina Aguliera, D as in Destiny's Child before.

There's no "rollover miles" like some other programs do, so anything above 75K AS metal isn't really helping you, other than on your quest to 1MM. Would suggest topping off one of the other programs...

At T-120 (or for 72/48 for Gold/MVP), there's no need to use a GGU, and you *should* automatically clear, but occasionally the upgrade processor will fail and U will remain open. If you've not been...

Yes, but do monitor for upgrade space (set an ExpertFlyer alert for U if you have a pro account). Since the main and GGU price are the same, you're already in a GGU-eligible fare class. If you see U...

I assume you're referring to the purchase screen with the filters for the upgrade types based on your question here, as a GGU can only be used when there is upgrade space (U class) available. These...

I think the Delta SkyClub is a bit better personally. A bit more substantial food items, larger space, better views. Not sure if it's worth paying $29 for what it offers beyond Centurion Lounge, but...

It is one time. Based on your expected travel (r/t weekly it sounds like), it won't take you all that long to get to MVP. Depending on who you work form, some companies (Amazon, Microsoft, etc) have...

I don't think they're necessarily dead, dead, dead. Had mimosas offered on 8/2 LAX-DCA (12:30 pm departure) and 8/10 DCA-LAX (9:15 am departure) along w/ coffee, OJ, or just plain bubbly pre-takeoff...

Apologies for the jump to conclusions - I've not flown either Finnair or Nora. HUCA or email until you get the miles if you're within program terms.

Agree. Not nickel and dime-ing for them to follow the long-established program rules they've had clearly posted. You got lucky in the past with some errors on their part, just as I'm sure we all have...

Likely just an app glitch carrying over the waitlist info from the former reservation in Y. Does it show it on the website too, or just the app? If you're able to select an F seat, you should be fine.

For AS metal, one week should be fine. Worst case they may end up posting on their own, as well as getting the manual credit. :)

I've definitely asked and been told "after we're up in the air" before, so it's not always that cut and dry.

They are really huge. And not limited to Row 1. Reconfigured Airbus seem to have them in at least Row 6, if not the first few rows of Y. :(
