I never get upgraded on New York-San Fran flights. Flying United. Have you had any luck with Delta or American?

Here is the deal. On those long haul continental flights people pay for first class leaving little chance for upgrades on status.

Long shot to get upgraded on them on any airline. I assume you are aware that you may not be upgrade eligible without applying an instrument (RPU) as they are considered P.S. flights rather than regular domestic flights

Delta upgrades to comfort plus pretty reliably. Don't overlook the smaller airlines on that route... they'll match status and have less consultants to complete with...

I get upgraded to delta one on that route at least for my inbound or outbound flight. The other one, I get comfort. Btw ’m platinum

@pwc2 are those complimentary upgrades? I know AA requires mileage vouchers for some tiers

You won’t get upgraded because it’s considered a premium flight. All upgrades are paid for. Look at the fine print for this route

Yes I got upgraded on AA SFO to NY this week as a lowly gold. Trick was to work so late in Tuesday that I had to fly on July 4th 😕

Usually from hub to hub there’s not a chance because they are used as pivot points to other locations. Ie JFK to LAX on both AA and Delta

Any tips on how to make this commute less tiring?

Pwc1 do share

I had decent luck with JFK-LAX on AA — I’m probably ~50% on that route compared to ~80% on most other routes. I’ve actually had difficulty on ORD-SFO recently (which is surprising as JFK-SFO/LAX is a far superior product), but that may be my reduced travel at the new company kicking in

Try a layover or Oakland or San José

Are you 1k? If so you have a tiny chance. If not the most you can get is Economy Plus.

M1, yeah! Ever since delta has offered the same day upgrades to delta one, it’s been life changing.

Are you 1K? You can gamble moving to a different airline for few weeks, United might give you a complimentary global services to get you back. It’s a hit or miss.

Thanks all. What’s better on this route on United - reg economy plus or exit row economy plus?

I won’t take exit row, I would take economy plus.
