It does happen, but as non AA elites we are not part of the domestic upgrade program.
Some clueless (or helpful) AAngels will put you on the list whether or not they're supposed to. Only once have I been successful. Almost had such luck again at LGA in December until one of the two at the Admirals Club desk realized I had an AAdvantage award (as there are no upgrades whatseover on awards) where I put my AY+ number in to show status. Tried at the gate too and there they realized "Look it's AY and not AA" and pointed to the tiny corner where that is displayed.
