    Bummer about the new Q fare or higher requirement. However I don’t think codeshare upgrades are new. In the past I never had issues with using paper certs on codeshare flights as long as they’re operated by LH. Given that LH.com doesn’t actually alow you to book specific fare class I’d usually book them through united as codeshare and then upgrade with the cert.

    BTW, do you know what are the criteria for clearing the upgrade? Are they coming out of a specific fare bucket or can you upgrade as long as there are any seats in that class?

    any idea what the business to first upgrade path looks like / required fare classes?

    First is typically empty on routes I take like SFO FRA and YVR FRA.
