I was #1 on the list, and the only one upgraded. This was an A320, so only 12 F seats.

Ah when I became 1K I definitely envisioned using precious PlusPoints on 90 minute domestic routes because otherwise I'd be #6 for 0 seats.

772 v4, I was #5 on the upgrade list (Platinum) for the last few days with 10/28 seats open.

This was my 4th? attempt to offload my PlusPoints on this route in the last month, finally got it with an 8 AM flight the day after Thanksgiving... Second to last United flight of 2022 so I was beginning to think these points were done for.

Applied PlusPoints for a friend with no status. Amazing to see a non-premiere member clear the day after Thanksgiving on the last available F seat no less!

5. 20 PlusPoints
6. 9 weeks
7. 8 weeks

I was really surprised to have this clear, not to mention so far in advance, since these red-eye flights often have 30+ on the waitlist at departure.

January is actually not difficult to clear in advance.
