Gotcha @P1. I used a GPU but worried it won't clear bc I bought at a low fare class. How do I upfare? Didn't see any options on the website

You have to call in and tell them what you need. No airline I know of allows it online. They should not charge a change fee since you’ll need to pay them more and you’re not altering your flights, just upfaring.

Fare class aligns to published fares, e.g., UA might file a V class fare on ORD-SEA for $300 with a 21-day purchase requirement and require a Saturday night stay for a round trip itinerary. You definitely can “upfare” to a more expensive fare class to make it refundable, get you into business or first class, make it eligible for international upgrades, etc., but it definitely will not be free.

What are you actually trying to do?

P1 nailed it. I’ve done it a million times.

Fwiw - I’m an A-lister until 2018 December. And I currently have a SW credit card which I got 3 ago which I intend to close.
