Route: IAH-LIM
Fare Class: G
flight date: 06/19/2022
Upgrade: Y to J
# PlusPoints: 80 x 2 pax
Booked: 04/13/2022
Upgraded: 06/18/2022 (T-24).

But the connection flight IAD-IAH failed. A family of five were ahead of us.

Edit: There was a weird decline of upgrade for passenger seated at 22C (behind exit row in standard economy) for IAD-IAH. It was weird because there was nobody cleared during boarding or within T-24 h, but she got a BP for 22C and she were not caught for a wrong seat during boarding. This cascaded into one of the five-member family, who also declined. My wife got the boarding pass for this FC seat. However, I only noticed this updated BP after deplaning. Before leaving IAD, neither FA nor GA came to my wife. Well, I shot 1K Voices an email.

PP can be used on CM, LH, NH flights on certain fare classes. Expand the PlusPoints section (link) for more info.

They can be used on flights operated by Copa, Lufthansa, or All Nippon Airways.

thank you so much - I've had no luck looking for UA pp availability and all the routes that included LH flights said not available so I didn't know about the fare class issue - have to do some more investigating.

You +P numbers don't make sense, unless you have some sort of special deal Should be 80 from K+, 40 from W+ and 30 from R+
