Yes. Right now, I am AA EXP, UA 1K, and BA Silver.

So I'm thinking I'll keep the first 2 and swap BA silver for AS MVP Gold. Main thing I give up then is free Admirals Club access (with premium...

I mainly fly in paid J on my work trips to India, but use FF miles to take family to India and to get parents/in-laws to SAN in J :)

Thanks so much. So looks like the main trade off is losing FCL and SWU but earning MANY more miles on AS.

I guess one more intriguing possibility is to give up BA Silver (which I use for Admirals...

This change really hurts me

I must be among the worst affected by the change. My UA travel patterns are 3 RT/year on SAN - EWR - DEL/BOM in B/Y class (I would upgrade with the GPU's - with a high clearance rate on B/Y...

It priced on a M initially, but was finally a B class ticket bought on the UA website on 016 stock. UA was not selling LH E class on it's website.

N (so can't apply GPU); E would be closer to $1800

Just saw an E fare for $1400 on LH. So if buy the E fare on LH, can I apply the GPU to it to waitlist for J?

Also, how does LH prioritize GPU...

Advice on booking (and upgrade probability)

I need to book a 1-way from MAA - FRA - CPH/ARN/OSL - BGO on 5 Aug. Here is the question. I can buy this in economy for USD 1500 on the UA website (B class on MAA - FRA) and hope to apply a GPU to...

109,316 PQM on UA

Also kept my EXP - takes some juggling to keep both 1K and EXP with the need to track EQD's and EQM's on both; but kept both and am happy for the flexibility that provides.

Thanks. I looked at one-way J from FRA-DEL on the LH site and saw 10 seats unassigned in J (though I agree that's likely a poor proxy).

Thanks so much! I am on a Y-fare applying a GPU on FRA-DEL, where there appear to be around 8-10 J class seats available for sale.

Sorry if this question has been answered before, but how do UA GPU requests on LH get prioritized? Is it by time of request or by fare class?

In particular, does a B/Y class ticket on LH (not...

Thanks so much...this is super useful. So will call the 1K desk and ask them to apply the GPU ONLY to the international segment (and wait-list for SAN - EWR on PN).

Instant upgrades of Y/B fares?

What inventory class do these come from? Are these still happening at reasonable frequency?

For me, these are (a) not clearing at booking, and (b) not clearing even with a SWU.

Specifically,...

Any changes to upgrade priority?

Not too disappointed by the changes; makes qualifying for EXP marginally easier since I have a mix of fare classes and the 1.5 EQP will no longer get offset against 0.5 EQP on discount economy fares....

Ticketing AI on 016 stock

This is great news to see this flight. Does anyone know if it's possible to issue a J-class ticket on AI SFO-DEL on 016 stock? Assuming this would be needed for PQD for status on UA?

A simple way to reward the over-achieving EXP's would be to prioritize upgrades (both complimentary and SWU's) based on the number of EQP's flown the previous year. Does not help if you only fly...
