So I'm an A-Lister and desperately trying to hang on to my status for next year. I have 6 flights scheduled between now and the end of December and was thinking I could upgrade them to business select in order to gain the extra points I need. Before I spend a ridiculous amount of money on these upgrades, I have two questions: a) Will the points definitely count toward A-LIST? I recently bought things through SW partners that said the points were Tier Qualifying, but they only went toward Companion Pass and NOT A-List. (Seems ridiculous that I can potentially obtain a Companion Pass without being A-List but whatever.) b) What's the conversion rate for upgrading a base fare to business select? On one of my recent flights, I asked the attendant at the gate how many points I would get in return for the $300 it cost to upgrade to business select and she didn't know. Do I get more points for upgrading since I'm already A-List? If anyone knows these answers, it would be awesome if they could tell me since no one I've asked at SW so far seems to know. Thanks!!
