Do you need to be logged into the Android app (with an AE account with Status) for it to work? Or open to all...

I'm SE, but can access the list for flights I'm not scheduled to be on. I presume the App would require you to log in, but who knows what you could get hacking at the URLs

I thought it might have been a bug how the list jumped around, but it at least makes sense now.

Though it's still a little strange. United doesn't do that

Can anyone clarify Sean Peever's insistence that you can access this without an Android device? If so, how?
Was this post #20 ,000?

I'm sure if he likes you, he will share the Skinnamalink-a-kinky-link, skinnamalinky-poo.

if y'all are so smart why not just write an iOS app that does nothing more than take a date and flight number and display the list. I would ask AC to include it in their iOS app but honestly it is now a total PoS that badly needs about a dozen other fixes first.

But does he like me in the morning, or in the afternoon? Does he like me in the evening underneath the moon?

I've read through this thread and still can't figure this out.
AC156 tonight, Upgrade List:

Capacity : 28
Booked : Full
Checked in : 18

8 pax with green checkmarks
13 pax numbered from 1 afterwards

Are the 8 pax confirmed J and not on the upgrade list, or previously cleared upgrades (either at booking from Latitude or Flex and into R space)

And by Booked Full it means that anyone numbered from 1 onwards doesn't have much chance of clearing unless one of the remaining 10 pax don't check in?

To show up on the list, it means you did not book J on that flight. The list could indicate someone standing by or requesting an upgrade (regardless of how they describe it, the "upgrade" list is actually just the onload list for J, which includes standby).

So if you have a checkmark, it means you're an upgrade. This could have been confirmed 2 weeks ago, 2 months ago, or yesterday.

People who booked J do not show up on that list.

The numbered passengers have not yet cleared. Unless there's a no-show, or someone fails to check in, they will not be sitting in J.

If you're on a NA Latitude flight pass and use the complementary 48 hour upgrade do you show up on the list as a green checkmark, as you're technically in J, and not in R space.

No, that would make you confirmed J, so you're not on the list.

So the lists have been out for a little over a week, and we've uncovered several issues.

--------------------

1. The list is not being processed in the order it is displayed.
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/28087282-post85.html
I was watching AC 33 YVR-SYD on March 25, and #2-4 cleared around the time the flight closed, and then #1 cleared around 10 minutes later. Either the staff are bypassing the list, or the order in the list is wrong.

2., Cancelled bookings still show up on the list.
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/28093602-post110.html
To reproduce:
  1. Book a flight in J for AC 420
  2. In OLCI, go on standby for AC 418
  3. Verify you are now on the list for 418
  4. Offload yourself and cancel the booking
  5. You’re still on the list for 420
A concierge noticed this too, which means it’s more likely a DCS issue than a problem with the public list.

3. J standby shows in the upgrade list.
In the above example, for 418, you show up on the upgrade list, not the standby list.

4. Boarding the aircraft takes you off the list.
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/28101274-post133.html
This is not a serious issue, but it starts to mask how many people were upgraded. The data’s out there before boarding starts, so I assume it’s not sensitive information, but it would be nice to have this through to departure (or beyond).

--------------------

Anyone else see any issues?

I'm surprised they have this available for all flights. If they're worried about not revealing too much competitive info, then just make it available for pax that have checked in for a specific flight.

Anyone who really wanted the data would just buy a refundable ticket then.
