Click on "United air travel award rules:"
"You may redeem miles for travel in United Global FirstSM, United First®, United Business® or United BusinessFirst® , even if the space is not available. In these cases, United Economy in the same award type must be confirmed, and the front cabin will be waitlisted. For example, a Saver United First award must be confirmed in Saver United Economy to be eligible for waitlisting. If the courtesy waitlist does not clear, it will expire 24 hours before itinerary departure, and you will automatically be added to the airport upgrade standby list upon check-in. In these cases, you will be confirmed on a space-available basis by a United airport representative at the gate once the flight has closed for check-in. For United BusinessFirst and United Business travel awards, the difference in miles will be refunded when the United BusinessFirst or United Business class segment of the trip could not be confirmed. Waitlist requests may only be made over the phone with your local United Reservations office"

Trying to upgrade a United flight ZRH-EWR next week Sunday, they only allow wait-list, and there is only 8 J seats available, and only 1 person is as of now on the wait-list (with 1K),
Do i stand any chances of being upgraded (I have *G status)?
Or maybe someone could help me to clear!
PM me

Will plan B only work for flights operated by United or other airlines that are bookable through United too?
The agent I spoke to understood what I wanted but told me they can only do it on united flights, I was trying to to it on a LOT Polish airlines flight that I booked with United awards.

Based on UA announcement it sounds like there wont be a table to base a redemption in buisness off and you'll have to wait for availability to see how its prices.

Another reason to book thru partners.


Is Plan B dying on/for NOV 15?
