Question, if one had already cleared into R on a connecting itinerary and R was open on a nonstop within sdc window is that sufficient for sdc or must the underlying coach fare bucket also be open?

Eg cleared to R SFO-IAD-FRA, from W. Open R on the direct SFO-FRA but lowest coach open is V, what happens?

No SDC. Underlying economy fare class must be open. You don't clear directly into R. They redeposit the GPU, change you to the new flight in Y, then re-apply the GPU.

So, question re: using a GPU to upgrade LH tickets. Is it the same procedure : request paper GPU and go to the ticket counter to request an upgrade? Even for Economy to Biz?
