    Mt Itin was ORD-SEA-SFO-BOS I used my CR1 online and it pulled just 1 for the full trip and I was confirmed on ORD-SEA-SFO(WL) cleared later-SFO-BOS cleared. Maybe since I was in the last flight into SEA and first flight out it removed just 1 CR1 from my account.

    Actually the CR-1 would work in theory from ORD-SEA-SFO-BOS-IAD-DEN-LAX-MSP if all the connections are under twelve hours and you aren't transiting the same hub again =D

    For a domestic / region 1 trip, anything over 4 hours breaks CR1 usage (12 hours is international itin rule) -- althought if the next available flight is >4 hours that seems to be OK (at times -- never have fully figured that out).

    And sometimes the CR-1 pops back into your account after it's been used. Seems there's some algorithm that (at least occasionally) will check to see if your upgrade would have cleared under UDU rules, and if it would have, returns the CR-1.

    That's a nice touch -- you can upgrade on the basis of the CR-1 at time of ticketing, but the CR-1 is actually taken only if it's needed.

    Been seeing this on here for days.
    Believe me, some things are better left unsaid!
    It truly amasses me how people seem to have the need to post things that have the potential to screw things up for others, down the road!
    This thread needs to end, post haste.

    Amen, you don't see me posting about stuff like these because UA does have a team of people reading this forum...

    It is amassing that there seems to be a inherent need for some to "BLAB"!

    Sorry was just trying to figure out if this was a regular occurrence or a one time thing. Didn't mean to offend anybody. I have no problem in the thread being closed.
