    If I have a United award (probably using partner airlines) and first class becomes available on the same airline (or another airline with the same origin / destination) can I claim the first class award by paying the difference in miles? Is there a fee (for a United Gold)?

    Yes and yes. It is a reissue of the award, not an "upgrade" so don't use that word when calling in. Just say you want to change the award.

    Thanks.

    (Wonder why I didn't get an email when you posted this answer. . .)

    Because that was broken for a while, including when I replied. Should be working now.
