I know that at Air France and KLM there is a strict instruction to upgrade according to a specified sequence.
So non-card holders would NOT be upgraded but instead a Platinum or Gold card holder is upgraded, and the freed up seat in Y then goes to the non-card holder on standby.
But sometimes policies are not followed, e.g. if it jeapardizes the punctuality of the flight or if all card holders have already boarded.
