I got 4 tickets on the route below. Total PlusPoints= 120

1. Route: MUC-IAD
2. Date: 04/16/22 Sat
3. Fare class: W
4. Y-O, Y-J, O-J (O=PremiumPlus), J-F (for LH/NH): Y-->J (W-PZ)
5. # of PlusPoints: 30
6. How many days/weeks in advance ticket was purchased: 4 months
7. How many hours/days/weeks before departure did upgrade clear: 3 days*

*changed our flights from LIS-IAD to LIS-MUC-IAD since the latter was showing PZ9 for two days. There was no way we would clear into J on the direct flight, and after getting to Lisbon in Y I was not going to return in Y. Neither were the kids, who were both advocating loudly for a changed itin while spouse was questioning the need to do so.... We booked right into J.

ORD-BRU on May 30
R --> PZ (30 points)
Purchased about 1 week ago when inventory showed P9 PN2 PZ0. Received text today that upgrade cleared, now flight shows P9 PN1 PZ0. This gives me a little more optimism for a few other flights currently waitlisted for upgrades.
