    I've tried a bunch of flights and most of them are showing upgrade bucket inventory ... some aren't but I can't find a pattern (domestic vs intl; non-stop vs connection vs direct). Either way, a whole bunch of awesomesauce.

    Let's see if I have this right --

    V - First Class Elite upgrade (domestic)
    G - First Class Miles/cert upgrade (domestic)
    X - Business Class Elite upgrade (domestic)
    Z - Business class Miles/cert upgrade

    If it's showing on KVS that means it's publishing publicly through GDSs. In your example, Sabre (via FlightStats.com). Same results from Sabe via GetThere.com and also Galileo, so it's not even just a Sabre thing.

    So a domestic flight that sells the front cabin as first will show V and G but not X and Z.
    A domestic flight that sells the front cabin as business will show X and Z but not V and G.

    In your example above, each flight is either showing V/G or X/Z but not both (as should be the case).

    Time will tell whether this change was intentional / whether it'll last....
