    Hi all:

    I'm taking a MR to SIN this December (or late November). It wil help me close up 1K for next year. I have 2 GPU's left.

    I live near BWI - planned on flying out of IAD, either to NRT and onward, or to ORD, or SEA...etc., etc.

    I found outbound space for a business upgrade with a GPU, but I'm having trouble with the return. It seems the flights out of SIN are the problem, to NRT, HKG, ORD, no space for GPU's.

    For those of you who have traveled this route, how likely is an upgrade on that first portion? If I just go ahead and ticket, waitlisting the SIN-NRT (or whatever destination) segment, do people get upgraded?

    I would sure appreciate input and advice. I've read so much about SIN from people here and on FT, and though I will have only a few days, I'm really looking forward to it. Tips to maximize my GPU upgrade chances, and route suggestions, would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
