Continental and United to offer reciprocal upgrades

Announced today that upgrades will be reciprocal. This is good news as a whole, but has little impact on me. First off United has smaller First cabins so upgrades will be difficult, second, it’s only recent that CO has mainline service to CLT and they don’t have mainline service most of the time I fly them so I will probably never get upgraded on CO. I’m not sure how CO elites will affect my ability to upgrade on UA.
