    I'm flying on AA2493 JFK-MCO on 26th. I'm Gold and a requested sticker upgrade. I'm just curious, can any one familiar with this route advise me on my chances for an upgrade to clear? I've never flown that route before, so I can't guess. So far it shows 21 available inventory in F (2 class 763). Thanks.

    My experience with MCO from any number of departure cities is it's fairly easy to clear upgrades. MCO is obviously a heavy leisure market and a relatively short flight from JFK so also a route some elites may not be willing to burn stickers for.

    There's a Google Spreadsheet that you can use to check data reported by community users and enter your upgrades. They've been around for a while, and I cannot vouch for its accuracy, but I always check when I am looking and enter city pair codes when I request an upgrade. I can't remember who created the tool from TOBB, but I find it useful for checking the odds.
