Does the waitlist work for saver awards and regular award tickets?

Appreciate the heads up.
It's a nice feature - works for co-terminals too

I only do Savers, can only assume it works for "regular" (if you mean the overpriced, last seat Standard awards that you should try and stay away from booking)

The kinds of WL I'm aware of:

1. Booked in a lower cabin on a higher int'l itinerary - WL the higher cabin (be it a short domestic leg or a long int'l one)
2. Have a multi-segment trip, WL a non-stop
3. Plan B (still available?) - get confirmed in Y, but pay the C fare and get a WL C segment
