I have searched through some of the discussions here and I have read what is available on the UAL web site, but it does not jive with what the supervisors tell me on the 1K desk. Can someone explain to me what the "real" companion upgrade (CPU) policy is? I'm a 1K and on 2 different occasions in the last 5 months, I have checked in and when the question during check-in asks "Would you like to split your reservation if an upgrade seat is available for only the Premier member?" (Or whatever it says.) I have said "No". [Getting upgraded while your other half sits in coach is NOT a good recipe for marital bliss.] Yet, twice within 96 hours of the flight, I was upgraded and my other half was left in coach. Both times, I called the 1K desk. The first person to answer essentially said "Duh, you must have clicked "Yes" to split the reservation and you did not realize it" Both times I had to ask for a supervisor. The first time I called, the supervisor said, "Your companion's record is marked as being 1K status, but won't be considered for upgrade until the day of flight." She could not, however, tell me why my companion would not be considered for upgrade until the day of flight even though the ticket was marked as being 1K status. [SnowDogMom is not a Premier] The second time the supervisor said, "Sorry, once the reservation is split, your companion is out of luck. No upgrades period even 'day of flight.'" [This particular time, there was actually 15 seats available in first after my upgrade cleared.] Any advice? References?
