Detailed fare class info when searching for flights.

Via Gary,

" R is upgrade from coach to the next highest cabin (RN is the bucket that elites can use, generally the two buckets are equal)
    ON is upgrade from business class to first class on 3-cabin planes
    Y fare auto-upgrades to the next highest cabin (in complimentary upgrade markets) book into JN while B fare and M fare auto-upgrades book into PN
    Award tickets book into the standard Star Alliance buckets X for coach, I for business, and O for first.
    Elites get access to XN, IN, and ON to the extent those will ever be greater than the standard X, I, and O.
    Standard (spend more miles to buy out of capacity controls) awards book into HN, ZN, and FN respectively for coach, business, and first class. Since United no longer offers last seat availability to non-elites, there are special elite fare buckets here as well YN, JN, and FN for coach, business, and first class last seat availability. United Explorer credit card holders are supposed to have access to these along with elite members."

Lol, just realize those numbers don't stack. 9's across the board can be wiped out with 9 seats sold.
