I do not have any United status.  What's the chance that I will be able to upgrade a revenue Y ticket to J for LAX-BOS on a mid-week red-eye?  I'm presuming it's near zero.  :'(
If you pay what they're asking for an upgrade, pretty high :)

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I cant keep up with all the changes......

Does United let you cancel an award ticket (for travel partner) within 24 hours of booking if flight is less then 7 days out?
