    Hello,

    I am Platinum preferred with USAirways... I just called the platinum desk to upgrade to first class and they are wanting to charge 9,000 miles plus $100. What is everyone's thoughts? Do other airlines charge this fee? Or is it coming from the "New American"? I have the option to fly delta and wanted to see what everyone's thoughts were. I fly every week with USAirways (mainly this year) and this is the first time I have had to pay using award travel. I just recently upgraded one of my flights from CLT to SEA with out a fee. I look forward to your replys.

    Thanks,

    A

    I just received an email recently that talked about this type of thing, that Elites were no longer exempt from the fees for many items, upgrades being one of them. I didn't think that was too cool either. I presume this is the erosion we will see of the US airways benefits.
