In my last gasp of corporate life United 1K, I as determined to finally successfully use a GPU.
I have been unwilling to pay up for an upgradeable fare class. In November when those $400 to Europe fares hit, the United ones to Paris and Dublin were upgrade-eligible fare class. I booked one of each, and each had one segment instant confirm and one waitlist.
Well, my flight tonight out of Newark sold out in business so I am, and I can’t believe I am spending the extra time to do this, flying down to Washington-Dulles to pick up the flight across the Atlantic. Instead of a quick nonstop in exit row I am adding about 4 hours to my trip to swap for 7 hours in Polaris.
I hope the new Turkish Lounge in Washington-Dulles justifies the detour!
I haven’t paid attention to United’s Polaris rollout. All I know is this is a Dreamliner.
What am I in for?
