    How do you check for availabilty? Is it when you check for redemption and it is available, does that mean that SWU is also available ?

    If you are asking if first or business class award availability means that SWU upgrades are always available, the answer is no. I use ExpertFlyer, a paid service with a 5-day free trial, to check availability. Other than that, you can call AA and they will check for you, but if you get 8 of these things to use every year, calling AA will involve a lot of flailing away, and IMO it doesn't give as good results. An AAgent will never know what will be acceptable to you as well as you know it yourself.

    I too subscribe to ExpertFlyer. Someone told me that the SWU booking code to look for on ExpertFlyer.com is Biz Class - 'C' and First - 'A'.
    Good Luck!
