How likely will you get the upgrade if it says waitlisted? Or is there any hacks to it? Flying ANA for reference

You can’t really get off the waitlist for ANA business and up

Gotcha. Thanks!

Like A1 said, ANA waitlisted flight award in biz/first is extremely hard to clear even when there're seats available. Unsure about upgrades using ANA upgrade award/points or United PP.

On United metal, award/upgrade will clear as long as there are seats left

Thank you!!

Hey everyone! I’m getting my follicles measured for my first IUI this coming Monday- as I’m reading through all the posts it appears that the washed sperm count needs to be above 5M? I’m 37, my husband is 34- I’m starting to get really nervous about this working. My husband is not wanting to incur the cost of IVF even though a big chunk is covered my insurance, nor is he a fan of trying any of this all together. Anyone have advice on how to get your husband on the same page? Thanks!

And I clearly told In managerial round that I am open for salary discussion.

But no one responded. Will I get the call back in time? Or I just leave it and go ahead with other companies?
