I would guess CO's because they're using CO's systems.

In your subject, you say you like EUA better, then you say you like the waitlist on the flight status page. Those are two different animals, as the EUA uses a different ordering scheme than the waitlist you can see. You never have visibility into the EUA list.

United's does as well -- kiosk or agent checkin gives you a DM card, and on-line checkin makes a note at the top of the BP.

You can now on the Android app. And also note that UA has gate displays at many of its gates that show this info -- something that CO does not have.
