    Anybody know how I received a Y class fare when using miles to get a coach class award ticket? Will I be able to upgrade this ticket if I call in, as they say full fare coach y class can get automatically upgraded? (I'm gold preferred) and finally can I earn miles even thou it's an award ticket? Thanks for your responses

    US Airways award system is so broken, I wouldn't bank on anything. I had a ticket show on my screen as revenue F, when it wasn't really (and did not receive miles). From what I can tell, the front end display is not directly linked to the backend, so YMMV for anything.

    (Their system has had me book an incorrect ticket in the past too without ever showing the wrong ticket on the front end).

    Thanks, yea I agree. I won't hold my breath, I'll just hope they overbook so I can get another voucher. Oversold flight compensation is awesome!
