    trying to use the SWU for a family of 3 from LA to PVG but only offered during the week every week for 2 month period and waitlist on the weekend but due to work schedule can only leave on the weekend, has anyone been on a waitlist for a weekend and got to use the SWU?

    I've waitlisted about 50% of my SWUs over the years, mostly weekend flights since I'm a leisure traveler, and only 1 has not cleared. When are you looking to travel? Next month or a few months out?

    PVG wait lists will clear. Usually about 2-3 days out depending on when you requested it. If it is a close in purchase/request you may not clear until day of at the airport. Rare to not clear at least at gate.

    When you waitlist be sure to let them know you don't need all three to clear at the same time.

    Hopefully it clears since you're trying to go for New Years.

    Unless you don't need them all to clear, and are willing to accept the family consequences. ;)
