GPU upgrade "SUCCESS" 2013

May all your upgrades clear.

How about posting:
1. route
2. date
3. fare class
4. Y-C or C-F
5. How many days/weeks in advance
6. How many days before departure did it clear

For easy reference here is hte 2012 thread: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unite...ss-2012-a.html

I hope I am not breaking a long-standing FT tradition by saying the following: would it not make more sense to also include in this thread GPUs that have failed to clear the waitlist? Otherwise the data here has no significance - we have no way of telling if the sample here is a high or low percentage of total GPU attempts. I think if people posted successes and failures to this thread, we would soon get a much better idea of the situation with GPU usability...

Do you know how long the theads get already? I'm sure what makes great sense is someone setting up a route specific forum and people can report there. I inquired about having a separate subforum a couple years back, similar to the US Air GS Promo subforum and in that you would populate all the possible routes with a poll to report. However that didn't go anywhere.

In the end we can only do what we can do. I never check a route success or failure before booking anyway it is too cumbersome. Someone did create a webpage to report CPU success/failure based on status. Very helpful. If you create a webpage we will all love it.)

It is more for people to either celebrate and congratulate themselves of a place to vent on missing out.
