    Have a flight from SEA IAH BOG EWR IAH SEA for May 2014, after I booked these flights I noticed I was eligible for complimentary upgrade on all flights. Looked at my flights today and found that the upgrades have been confirmed and was able to choose my seats for the IAH BOG EWR flights. I believe this is unusual or am I wrong? have never had a CPU clear until the window.

    What was the fare code? Y, B, and M are eligible for instant upgrade at the time of booking for 1Ks, assuming the required inventory for the upgrade to clear was available on those flights.

    UA has announced that Asia and northern South America (including BOG) will no longer be eligible for CPUs as of February 2014 as a quiet part of the the sweeping devaluation of their award program they announced Friday.

    Perhaps they are doing here what they did when they removed CPU eligibility for Lima: (1) clearing the upgrade list in advance for all CPU-eligible pax, (2) getting rid of the CPU list.

    Will keep an eye on this just in case it is downgraded. I generally check all itineraries on Sat morning.

    Maybe since BOG will not be CPU eligible starting in Feb 2014, they will confirm existing tickets ahead that time? They did that when they changed for LIM.

    Received a nice email from UA stating that since I had booked prior to the new upgrade rule regarding Bogota I was receiving complimentary upgrades for my flights. Thought that was pretty nice of them.

    That is a customer friendly move in an uncustomer friendly policy change regarding upgrades to Bogota.
