    Does anyone know if the new UA frowns upon duplicate segments, in two different classes of service?

    Scenario: I have a Y to C upgrade that's unlikely to clear, but I could book a free F seat on the same flight... I'm aware that checking in might be tricky but it may just work, too.

    The old UA was running a watchdog to detect and cancel duplicate segments, but the algorithm was rather limited and there were multiple ways to circumvent it. Any experience with the new UA?

    I've had two seats booked on the same flight before but I know they have tools to detect such and that they frown on it.
