RPU / PlusPoints non-Polaris flight upgrade SUCCESS (thru 2019)

After searching for a thread and not finding it after more time than normal, starting a RPU success thread.

Route: ORD-BOS
Plane: 737-900
When applied: at booking, 3 weeks before flight
When cleared: 2 days after applying
# of passengers: 3
Booking class: T
Elite ?: Yes, 1k

I'm fired up as I thought without splitting up the PNR 3 people wouldn't clear. Boom 2 days after applying we are very satisfied.

Diditclear hasn't been working for quite a while now. Does it work for you?

haha..... discussed yes I have discussed as well but there is no dedicated thread for it. diditclear hasn't work for so long I almost forgot it existed also it is an external website and not on FT so if why have master threads for GPU's, CPU's etc. if we are going to link everything to external websites?

Surprised there is no thread already so boom, here we go.

Sure, why not. Particularly interested to see waitlist success reports.

RPU success Sun 5/28 (day before Memorial Day)

UA319 IAD-LAX B739 cleared T-20 days
UA517 SFO-IAD B739 cleared T-24h (at about F8)

UA 1K, G-fare

Both flights had empty seats in F, so CPU waitlist would have cleared. SFO has all those ATC delays (due to runway construction), so not surprised if they hold F inventory as long as they can, to protect inbound international pax. But if I was them, I wouldn't clear CPU until boarding...which they didn't do. So a bit hard to explain.

Happiness is... finally clearing at T-24 on what I believe is United's longest route with bog - standard Domestic F:

ORD-ANC
73​​​​​​7-800
Booked W 4 weeks out
Applied at booking
Finally cleared at T-24h
​​​​​​1K.

​​​​6.75 hours is a long time to be in Y! They seem to hold out seats pretty aggressively for upsells at check-in on this route.

Guys what is up with you? That isn't RPU success thread, so let's chill out and post already.

My success this year so far:

EWR-LAX (Friday 6/16, 8:15 PM departure). Booked in March, cleared 6 weeks out

BTV-EWR (Monday 9/4): cleared at booking on E175. Yes, know this is kind of a waste, but I don't think I have enough flights left to clear my wife's RPUs...so why not?

Having an excellent run of luck on offpeak PS. Cleared SFO-EWR:
  • 11am/28J 752/K fare on a Thursday (cleared at T-2)
  • 7am/28J 752/G fare on a Wednesday (cleared at T-22)
  • 11:40am/60J 77W/L fare on a Thursday (cleared at T-18)

Cleared EWR-SFO:
  • 6am/16 and 28J 752/G-K fare on a Sunday at least 3x (usually clear at least a week in advance)
  • 8pm/28J 752/V fare on a Friday (cleared at T-10d, very surprised about this one)
  • 5pm/28J 752/K fare on a Sunday (cleared at T-0:30 thanks to a no-show)
