Any update as to when chase cardholders and elite will get upgrades on award tickets?

    Title sums it up, I have the chase co card and checked in for my YYT-EWR (op by shuttle America Dba UA exp).

    I know on CO metal we can get upgraded when having the chase card and status, but I assume this will happen for UA flights too? They did offer me a 439.00 paid upgrade but that's a bit much for a 3 hour flight.

    I should have put on the title, on UA metal. Sorry for any confusion :)

    Since the CO upgrade rules apply to the Shuttle America EWR flights, you should get your upgrade at the gate for free.

    Now, back to your original question, no idea :(

    It didnt put me on a upgrade list as far as I know, I guess ill find out tomorrow.

    I'm sure the gate agents will just tell me award tickets aren't upgradable but maybe I'm wrong here :(

    Last time I flew on an ex-EWR Shuttle America flight in October, I am not sure if I could visibly see whether I was on the upgrade list or not.

    Hope you get the upgrade anyway.

    Thanks, I quickly phoned plat line and they confirmed I should be able to be upgraded at the gate as well. That flight is relatively empty it seems in general so hopefully that works out for me :)
