Ive got 15,000 miles to burn from a * program. Im going to be in the USA and thought I would just burn them on United for an upgrade. Am I right in assuming that this is enough for a domestic flight upgrade? Has anyone ever done this and what booking class should I look out for?
 
Trying to access your favourite Australian websites when overseas only to discover they have been geo-blocked? Concerned about your internet privacy especially when using unsecured wifi? NordVPN will solve both these common problems.

Per the UA upgrade chart 15,000 miles for one way upgrade within North America - for booking classes MHQVWSKLT (or 8,000 miles if booking class YB). Note this is a one-class upgrade so on ps service flights (3-class domestic) the upgrade is to business not first. Having said that ps business is better than non-ps first.

It is for one way travel, so domestic stopover rules apply (under 4 hours except forced overnight connections).
