    Hi All,

    I used to know the answer to this, but I have since forgotten... Is it possible to use my SWU on a flight that will be booked through Air New Zealand? There is an SFO-LHR leg of the flight that is on UA metal, and I'd like to get that upgraded with a SWU, if possible. THanks!

    If it is booked as anything other than a UA flight number then you cannot use the SWU. You can book it through NZ but only if they book it as the UA flight number.

    Are you sure? Can I not even waitlist the day of? It's UA metal and I have a UA SWU.

    Yes, you can do it day of. You cannot do it in advance. With how unwilling most folks are to even book a ticket where the upgrade cannot be confirmed in advance I was thinking only along those lines, not for day of departure.
