On return BRU-EWR (UA metal) 2 cleared on Xmas Day - nice present from UA/CO.

No Xmas day is not yet bookable for 2012. My travel dates are in April - SWU's cleared for return leg on Christmas Day.

1/1 UA835 ORD-PVG - W fare
Booked in early October. Cleared sometime in November.

Obviously this being a Sunday Holiday made the upgrade easier. When boarding it said two seats in business available and only one person was on UG waitlist. Never have I seen that before

There was 39 economy seats open as well, another infrequent occurence for this route.

Folks, PUT THE FARE YOU PAID in these posts. Without that, it's meaningless to us as to what it takes to clear certain routes.

Booked 23rd December:
11th January SFO-SYD - cleared 30th December. V fare.
22nd January SYD-SFO - cleared 2nd January. W fare.

The leg on the 22nd is fairly open, but I was surprised that the one on the 11th cleared before the gate.
