But if you want to give it a shot, let us know what happens. Here's a report from last year of someone who booked a UA-marketed, LH-operated flight and tried to operate it via *A upgrade: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/lufth...-alliance.html . They hit a problem where UA was willing to try the upgrade, but they had to reissue the ticket on LH stock, and they were unable to do that because of foreign-carrier rules that affected their specific fare (maaybe a YCA fare).

This is possibly the wrong thread for YCA fares you may want to start a brand-new thread or http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unite...-upgrades.html .
Thanks for the quick response, very helpful! I'll see if I can just book an actual UA flight instead.
