    Seth, Think you’re going to book ex-NYC?

    @Kathy
    I’m still seeing $980, but there is a three day minimum stay unfortunately, so I won’t be going on the inaugural one. I’m sure I’ll find my was onto a United 787 before this flight though.

    yeah, I posted without reading Seth’s post entirely (and I apologize). my comment re: $1,707 was for the inaugural flight (3/31), which is no longer included. I never heard of the “farelock” before last night (as I tend to fly Delta), and I did lock in the 980 fare for 3/31 to 4/3. I guess that means I’m going.

    Is the fare available from other cities with a connection in DEN?

    Many thanks! Just booked SEA-DEN-NRT-DEN-SEA. Price went up a little, but still OK. Is PN space (B-up) released before RN space?

    I believe you lose the 150% EQM if upgraded. Correct? (I am on a B to LHR with an instrument waitlisted)

    Thanks again – I had not read the float over on EF. The domestic portion booked into K. Curiously, the eTicket Itinerary and Receipt lists the equipment as A320 on all 4 legs. Some parts of SHARES must not have been updated yet!

    Well, I blew that one. By tagging on the SEA-DEN-SEA K legs I was not eligible for a GPU upgrade, and the mileage upgrade grew a big copay. I tried re-booking, but the B fare was gone – replaced by an S fare. Also tried cancelling just the K legs, but that needed a re-issue, and hence a re-pricing. Seth’s approach of isolating DEN-NRT-DEN was the way to go.

    I have GPU upgrades waitlisted on DEN-NRT-DEN – showing in Coach(R)!! Agent refused to add the domestic segments, and the web site is not clear: “…and Y, B, M, E, U, H, Q, V, W, S, T, L, K, G, N (for upgrades from United Economy Plus® to the next class of service on all aircraft). Note that on some flights, Global Premier Upgrades are not available for fare classes Z, P, S, T, K, L, G, and N.” Do you have a definition for “some flights” that is more specific?

    So have a basic question!! All I see is the S fare. How do I find the B fare?

    @Paul – last I looked the B fare was gone. There is an S fare at the $980 level, and the B fare is now $4,000+

    @Seth – thanks, I’ll keep plugging away…

    Yup, S. I was going to book this afternoon but now it’s gone. Thanks for the heads up anyway.

    Third time lucky! I was just starting on the explanation, and she interrupted with “But the fare class doesn’t matter on domestic segments”. Still took her 30 minutes to do three segments…

    Got upgraded (RN) DEN-NRT. I was poking around, and saw PN space was available on both flights (PN 5, RN 2 out; PN 2, RN 0 back). So I called and asked if I could get upgraded into PN. Long time on hold, and the answer was no (not suprising) – but they have no idea why the space is being shown.
