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!

Iíve done HUcA 10 times agent keeps telling me canít do the plan B within 24 hours. Of course she didnít say the words plan B just that she canít deduct the saver miles from my account for J class because itís within 24 hours. True? New rule?

NYC-FRA-PAR in j via Lufthansa airlines for 70k+$40.

 Is that heavily overpriced?

Tried via Miles&More They wanted 52k plus $500-$600 in taxes.

I do not think it is overpriced, the MM taxes are high.

Think im going to take a direct rather then fly j with a stopover for 70k+$40 vs economy direct for $175.

It reverts back to EWR so had to search LGA and JFK separately.

Redeemed United miles for an international flight on Air Canada with a domestic connection. I called United to add an infant, and they wanted $400 for the infant. I asked for supervisor to try reprice it, coz that's ridiculous for an economy seat. They didn't budge on price and said to call air Canada to try add the infant.  But now when I look on the reservation on the air Canada site, it has my infant recorded with a ticket number. I contacted air Canada, and they say that from their end, the infant is 100% confirmed. Is there a chance they'll cancel it?
