Not sure I understand your post. The battlefield list will only show those who have checked in (hence, upgrade eligible) and is processed by the gate agent at around the 30 minute mark. Sure, some agents process it sooner, some later. But EUA is running until 30 minutes before flight time which means someone as #3 on the list can still be upgraded ahead of #1. What am I missing?

My post specifically called out that EUA runs until 30 minutes before departure and is the reason why #3 can be upgraded before #1. Seems to me we're saying the same thing.
