As the reservation was unticketed, its entirely feasible that between the time of the call 1 hour prior to departure and the actual time the open ticket was presented to "pay" for said reservation, the seat had been taken to accomodate an already ticketed passenger.
But didn't the OP already have a F BP? A boarding pass would mean the passenger is checked in and the open ticket had already been presented, no?
