    I have a flight booked in P class on flight operated by Lufthansa. I remember you could get certificates from United to upgrade a Lufthansa flight. Is this still possible with all the changes in FF programs? I would like to upgrade a business class to first class.

    "Fare class eligibility is determined by the operating carrier. The following Lufthansa fares are not eligible for Global Premier Upgrades: L, T, X, I, R, N, E, S, W, Z, P, K, O, ID, AD and IP. Please reference the terms and conditions below for specific eligibility rules."

    Unfortunately, no.

    I was hoping that getting a certificate would bypass that restriction.

    It wouldn't because Lufthansa will say Is Not Possible aka INP when they see that your booked fare class is P.

    UA is unlikely to issue a cert for P class.
