I'm confused about the interpretation posted in the thread wiki:

Flights booked prior to status changes probably will not reflect the status change until an update is requested; this may impact upgrade list position.
If I booked a flight and requested upgrades as Gold, and I'm now Platinum, will my upgrade list position be automatically bumped up to Platinum?

I called AAdvantage support just now and the CSR told me that my upgrade list position will automatically take into account my new Platinum status, despite the fact that I previously booked/requested as Gold. She told me I would not need to do anything.
