I was booking flights to PDX in F using my United Mileage Plus miles. I switched over to Star Alliance awards since United wasn’t showing availability at the saver level. I was looking over the flights and made sure to choose flights that were booking in F, but 1 of the legs (PDX-ORD) of course was booking in economy, but that itinerary was ultimately the best.
…after I finished booking the tickets it asks if I wanted to pay $600 to move to F on that 1 leg. I couldn’t tell if that would be $600 for both tickets, or for each. Still on principle I couldn’t do that.
To all you experts out there, if XF becomes available on that leg can I call and move up, or am we relegated to my exit row?
