Why not? I persuaded them to override and UG me a couple weeks back on a SEA-FLL flight when the 120 hour window had passed and plenty of seats were open and the terms of the program clearly state I should have been upgraded already (if the system was working correctly) and seats weren't being arbitrarily held back.

Don't ask, don't insist, don't persuade= don't get.

I will say, I was properly waitlisted and showing as such. For what that's worth.
