    I have the same routing (AUH-MAN-JFK) scheduled in September. I used miles to upgrade the EY segment. Do you there there is any chance they would still try to put me on the direct route?

    @Mark – are you flying on a ticket from the 12/24 “sale”? If so, what miles did you use to upgrade???

      @Eric – Yes. JFK-AUH / AUH-MAN-JFK. I called and they confirmed upgrade space was available only on the AUH-MAN segment. I then transferred SPG –> Etihad (but I think you can also transfer Citi TYP), which took about a week, and then I called back to process the upgrade one I had the miles.

    Thanks… will give them a call. I’ve got one JFK-AUH-JFK trip and one JFK-CDG-AUH-JNB-AUH-CDG-JFK trip and would be nice to get up front…
