1. IAD-BRU
2. 4/24/19
3. V
4. Y-J
5. Booked 1/30/19
6. Cleared 4/23/19--the site didn't let me apply a GPU after the check-in window opened, but it still showed PZ9 and the rep on the 1K line was happy to apply the certificate.

We departed with eight seats left open upfront, so I wonder how generous the upgrade buy-up offers got in the app as departure neared.
