    HAs anyone been successful in coach to business upgrades opening up closer to flight when seats haven't sold and used miles to upgrade? Also potential kiosk upgrades?

    I called United to upgrade my flight to Frankfurt using miles and was told it was 20,000 miles each way. Then she added that there was a $475 ticketing fee going and $500 ticketing fee coming back. I decided then that since I have a row of 3 to myself so far, I would stick with E+.

    Almost always (in fact, I think, always) and I travel this route a lot. Using SWU as an EXP.

    Did you do this at the airport or over phone with aa.. So i am out of swu's currently and aa didnt have any seats avail to upgrade with miles currently but ton of open seats.. I was hoping my peers here have had good luck snagging upgrades either at the kiosk or over the phone or the check in agent.

    My flights are the ord to lhr day flight and the 1:15 pm flight home..

    I believe they will waitlist you with the miles+copay option, just as they would with a SWU.
