    You won't get an upgrade unless you have one available. You will simply be booking a coach ticket that can be upgraded with an MVP upgrade from someone. If you are not expecting to get upgraded, the regular coach fare is often cheaper than the upgradeable fare.

    Thanks. The regular coach fare is only ~$20 less. I can do regular coach outbound and first return for a couple hundred more per ticket (using just MP upgradeable).
    I have a while to book these, so I will keep checking fares, etc.
    Thanks again.
