UPDATE: Looks like this might be a no-go. Hoping it’s a temporary issue. Will try and get some clarification and report back.
Here’s a little trick that will take the anxiety out of wondering if the AAgent applied your SWUs to the waitlist correctly.
Surfing Flyertalk yesterday I saw this post by zig2.
Here’s how to check:
Install the iOS or Android app TripCase (official Sabre app)
- Create a trip and link your PNR to the trip
- Click on the “Documents” tab
- Click on the “Arranger Itinerary” tab
- If your entries contain “Business Waitlisted” your SWU’s has been applied correctly.
Note: Not sure how this will work if you have a companion attached to your PNR.
Several people on Flyertalk have confirmed that this works. I can’t independently test it because I don’t currently have a flight with a SWU attached, but if you do and it works, please leave a comment below.
