I have been patiently waiting since Feb 2 for MileSaver Award space to open up on this flight. When I booked the award, they only had 1 Business Class award for this leg so I split itineraries to get the one watching carefully for another award to open up. I have an expert flyer alert and have regularly been calling about space. One AA reservationist looked at my log and said the request has been noted and I would get the upgrade when they release it...but, I still get checking as I doubted it would automatically reticket. I leave Saturday and this is the last leg of my trip. I am debating just going ahead and paying the extra 50K in miles for the AAnyTime Award even though there are still 11 business class seats available. Any thoughts?
