...and a last minute upgrade

The upgrade process for United in general is much more difficult than past years.  Even though PlusPoints are plentiful, the number of people traveling and willing to pay for any ticket in any cabin means fewer seats available for upgrade.  Pre-pandemic it seemed as though my upgrade chances were quite high; these days it's often last minute to get a final upgrade if available.

I was fortunate to get upgraded on my EWR-ZRH flight yesterday during pre-boarding.  I started at #2 and ended #1 on the upgrade list with 4 seats open.  Luckily the gate agent was also willing to put me in 1F which is the bulkhead seat with extra foot room.  Thank you United!
