if this doesn't clear for you and R doesn't open, remember SDC via other hubs -- which you should/could be in a good position for with an H fare

Thanks for sharing. Did you clear on the earlier (UA 989) or later (UA 932) flight?

Cleared on UA 932. Still showing R9, making me think there is a lot of seat(upgrade) availability. The entire plane seems open....and I am sure people have noticed this, but Tuesday nights and Wednesday seems the best with upgrade availability to Europe

1. YVR-DEN-NRT-BKK, BKK-NRT-LAX-YVR
(NRT-BKK codeshare with NH so no upgrade possible)
2. 1/14/14 - 1/22/14
3. Qx2
4. Y - C
5. 6 weeks in advance
6. YVR-DEN-NRT cleared at booking
Inbound: This morning I called 1K line when I saw R2 appear on NRT-LAX and agent cleared the upgrade. Still waiting on BKK-NRT and LAX-YVR (although we should be good on the latter)

I'm sure it's a GS benefit. I do not have the credit card.
