Upgrading on United using miles, GPUs, or RPUs.
You may have an answer for me. I have been trying to set up a flight from Houston to Maui through United’s site for travel in June. I have been using the “Advanced Search” option to search for tickets in Economy but upgrade them either using miles or upgrade vouchers. I have had no luck. All options presented are always “Upgrade Waitlisted”. On a whim I tried other routes (Houston – Tokyo, Houston – Hong Kong, Houston – Manila, etc.) and other dates (August, September, November, December) with the same results “Upgrade Waitlisted”. Have you had the same experience? Do these upgrade exists? Inquiry minds would like to know.
