    I was excited when EF alerted me that RN inventory had briefly opened up on the elusive SFO to SYD flight that I'm booked on in a couple of weeks. I'd been waitlisted for months, so I went to my UA Reservations page, ready to select a specific C seat. To my annoyance, I was still in Y class (on a B fare!) and now my waitlist request had been deleted!

    What to do? The RN inventory is no longer available. Do I have grounds to ask UA to open up a revenue seat for this booking due to their massive PSS inadequacies?

    Just as a tiny quibble, I think you actually want to be watching R inventory and not RN inventory — although we have heard that elite upgrades will clear into RN, that does not seem to be what is actually happening in practice.

    You can ask, but I'm pretty sure you'll be denied. If you've got a few more months, I'd just continue waiting it out.

    Also, I'd be putting alerts out for both R and RN space.
