Premier Global (SWU) on US Airways?

I have a friend traveling tomorrow on US Airways. Is it possible to electronically sponsor an upgrade on US Airways?

Would be using a SWU or Premier Global I guess they are called now

Nope, only on UA (and LH if you request a paper SWU).

So US Air does not honor them or just not electronically?

Thanks for quick reply by the way

Neither. You cannot use a SWU on US.

The only thing you can do is use miles for a *A upgrade (fare class restrictions apply as well as 24 hrs+ notice to confirm it).

As others have noted, no SWUs on US.
Here's the relevant web page from UA http://pss.united.com/web/en-US/cont...wupgrades.aspx
And, as always, search is your friend. This is the most comprehensive thread http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unite...nsolidated+swu
