Hopefully somebody out there can help me, I have some US Airways space available upgrades that I need to use before the end of the year, so being the romantic that I am; I'm taking the better half pre-Christmas shopping in New York. There are several routings we could take, but, does anybody know the average loadings for the routes mentioned below, ie which one will give me the best chance of space available upgrade.
LGW - PHL - LGA
LGW - CLT - LGA
LGW - CLT - RIC - LGA
LGW - CLT - PIT - LGA
The upgrades are for all flights with US; including internal, the difference in price is not a great deal and the difference in flight time is only approx 2hrs, so not a problem.
Returning is another problem, US advertise a couple of routings that seem strange:
LGA - SYR - PHL - LGW
LGA - BWI - PHL - LGW
I would love to fly the above, because they involve either a Saab 340 or a Dash 8; could we get upgrades on these?.
Thanks in advance,
