Hi 🐠 Fam, anyone know what status you need to get an upgrade to business on a United Polaris flight ( BOS/SF route)? I’m gold status but apparently that’s not enough to qualify on the Polaris routes.

Almost impossible even with 1K. Am a GS and still wouldn’t count on upgrades

Damn, well thanks for the insight! These kind of suck worse than. At least I can stop in for a snack at the U Club with a stop in Denver.

Delta Diamond here. Don’t get Delta One upgrades, despite using an upgrade certificate on NYC - SF. I’m assuming you’re in a similar boat from Boston

Read flyertalk. Polaris flights can only be upgraded by certificates, miles, or money. The certificates are only available to 1Ks. Gold is nowhere near enough

No automatic upgrades on that route, you have to use RPU/GPU or miles to upgrade. Even then it’s not guaranteed because a lot of people will be doing it

Super tough to get upgraded on major business flights if you only have gold

How can I set the stage this year to negotiate a lower billable hours expectation instead of a raise? As a woman I'm hesitant to be open about my reason: I want more time at home with my kids. I lateraled to this firm a year ago for WLB and they are indeed flexible on WFH which helps. Salary is a bit below average for mid-size firms like mine in my area, and I didn't get a raise or bonus this year because I didn't hit the billable target (1900). Ideally I'd keep my salary but go to 1600 hours.
