Mixed Cabin awards on LH flights - question

Hi everyone,

I am going to book an intra-european one way C award with MP miles for 25k total. There is no availability in C for the first segment so it would be Y for the first segment and C for the second segment.

Am I able to waitlist for the Y flight for a free upgrade to C by calling MileagePlus? I think it's possible with UA flights but I don't know about *A flights.

If waitlisting is not possible, when space shows up is it possible to call them and have them switch it to C for free since I already paid 25k miles?

Thanks for your help!

You can't waitlist non-UA metal. However, you should be able to call if space opens up and get the C segment confirmed.

And whatever you do, when you call, do not mention the word "upgrade". You are not looking for an upgrade, you're just looking for the cabin you've already paid for.
