UPGRADING with a "Y" Ticket

Hello all!
Im not sure if this is new, or I had never used it.
Im having a trip next Sunday (5 days ahead), then today I called to ONE PASS to get an unpgrade for the first two flights.
I was surprised to know that I was give those upgrades PLUS the confirmation for the upgrades for my returning flights, which are in 20 days!
When I asked abut it, I was said that buying a ticket in "Y" class, I have rights for asking for an upgrade for the FULL itinerary.
Thats great for me!
Anyone knew anything about this?

You're talking about an elite upgrade? Silver, Golds, and Platinums can confirm an upgrade on domestic travel at the time of booking if you purchased a Y-fare ticket.

Grrrr., youre right.
I had read it, but forgot all about it.
My forst "Y" it was this month, and I got the upgrades, but the regular way (calling within the "5 days window")
This time, I called to ONE PASS, and they "REMEMBERED" that to me.
And, dbaker, note that is not only for domestic flights only, I am doing two international flights.

Confirmed Upgrades from Full Fares


Silver Elite members traveling on a full Economy (Y) fare may request an upgrade at time of ticketing when traveling on Continental Airlines. Silver Elite members may also request an upgrade at time of ticketing when traveling on Copa Airlines on a full Economy (Y) fare.

Oops, you're right. Not just domestic flights, but for flights that are treated like domestic flights. (Non-BF, etc)
