    Called to separate my/wife's PNRs so I could request complimentary upgrade on N fare, as my wife has no status (I'm PM).

    Phone agent took care of it quickly and said she'd send me an email confirming the change, along with my new confirmation number.

    Got the email later that evening, which showed me CONFIRMED into First w/o seat assignments on R fare. This on all 4 legs of trip (2x outbound and 2x return). Checked my wife's and she also is now confirmed into first w/o seats.

    Of course, I quickly assigned seats :)

    Anyone else ever experience this? Will it stick?

    I should mention, these flights are months away.

    I'm pretty sure it will stick. Congrats! I've had great luck on upgrades on N fares of late- two different 25 k award tix, total of 8 segments. Each were last minute bookings, not like yours, booked less than a week out. I got the UG to RU at the window on 7 of the 8 segments (number 8 was on a one-class CR7).

    Make sure the DL agent didn't pull miles for the UG. ;)
