Interesting thread... something I've seen (well, suspected really) was happening.

A related topic: I've been cleared via SWU at the gate a number of times only to discover OP-UPs happening all around me. It's one of those situations where you can't really complain because you got what you paid for (high $ ticket and surrender of SWU) but geez, if I'm gonna get bumped anyway it would be nice to let me hang on to my precious SWU!

Like the OP, I have to take the M+ fare / no Z gamble sometimes. Usually works out but I've been caught short a couple times - where they couldn't even squeeze me into EC even though I paid 3x what my seatmates paid. Kinda puts me in a mood, ya know.
