Umm... generally speaking the highest revenue flyers don't need to be upgraded because they are already in first.

Nothing "wrong" with CO's system, but then again there's nothng "wrong" with AA's either. AA seems to value those of us who purchase cheap fares early, so my guess is they think we are helping to keep them in business, too.
