    I have a ticket on hold (via telephone) with multiple segments all on UA, expect LX 40 on Dec 7. The difference between L fare on that segment and B fare is $1400. I need the flight, but not that segment's 150% pqm for 1k this year. My questions are: Am I correct from my research that no award availability (I) exist on that flight? And two, even if it did exist, isn't $1400 too much to pay (subjective, I know)?

    And feel free to move thread to *A or M&M forum if better suited there.

    ZRH-LAX for those who don't have the Swiss flight numbers memorized. ;)

    I do not see it as available and would not pay $1400 extra for the chance of using miles to confirm an upgrade.

    I'm in the same camp as you and wouldn't pay the premium unless I could confirm the upgrade on the spot.

    I probably wouldn't pay $1400 + 25k points even if I could confirm the upgrade.

    Thank you for clarifying the flight and confirming what I thought ($1400 is too much).
