There seems to be much confusion on the FT thread about the priority of upgrades on a separate PNR who have no status. Here's my situation and I'd love to hear what you think is the best strategy. I'm traveling with a non status companion and I'd like to request upgrades for her on this domestic trip. That said, I don't want to risk not getting the upgrade due to only one upgrade being available at T-100. Because of this, I was thinking the best strategy would be to have two different PNRs and call to request an upgrade on her PNR as my companion. But the question remains... will she clear only after all elites have cleared, or will she clear at T-100?
