    Free to whoever wants it, 1st come 1st serve and no strings attached. Just didn't want it to go to waste.

    sure. Not sure what's the best way to hand it off. I guess if you give me the confirmation number/last name, I can just apply the upgrade from my united mileage plus account?

    Such a nice gesture! I am on a UA flight Friday 8/31 showing R2, but it has to be one of the shortest UA flights in the country that even has a two class cabin, so I'm sure that someone else can put it to much better use!

    Well, I rather it gets used than not used at all. How short is the flight?

    Extremely short. Think IAH-AUS short. AKA barely two drinks worth. Consider me a super back-up. As much as everyone on this board travels, someone must have a longer flight in the next few days. Again, very nice gesture though and I'd rather drink two glasses of wine then have the regional go to complete waste.

    The R5 represents the number of seats that are available for RPU/GPU/Mileage upgrades.

    Not sure applying the RPU will work right now since United's systems are down.

    Yeah I saw that too. I guess when it's back up, we can see about applying my regional upgrade to your itinerary. I guess at that time you can just let me know what your confirmation is and I'll do it online and then you can see if you got upgraded right away or is on wait-list instead.
