I'm surprised no one's mentioned that this feature has disappeared already. I don't even see it in the Play Store's "What's New" section.

I guess people didn't need it as much as they claimed

Oh FT.

A negative slant is always available.

Could it be that people have different preferences and priorities? How could we keep trivial threads going for hundreds of posts if we did all agree?

And some who value privacy may still not believe that "privacy" was AC's legit reason not to expose its standby/upgrade list.

I was just about to ask where it is; I'm on the upgrade list for a J3 flight on Friday, and would love to know where I stand .... but the feature has gone now?

Then suddenly, the "privacy concerns" party-line was cut and no longer towable.

very interesting that this looks exactly like the ua app, which has been created virtually all in house in iah.

i think this app is going to do nothing but create more bellyaching on ft when #1-3 on the list doesn't clear and a mystery pax (full fare, some type of exception that the app won't disclose, same day change, last minute non rev posi-space shows up, etc) ends up taking (an) open seat(s). take a look on the ua forums over the upgrade list priority, it's really convoluted and extremely aggravating for some.

mind you ac does not do complimentary premier upgrades so maybe it'll function better (although i have no complaints with the ua app)

never heard of this airline, let alone that they have j, and i think the beta is for rapidair routes only. or are you being sarcastic. or is j3 what people out east call the rapidair corridor.

i would just write my name as illegibly as possible then claim disability if someone breaks my balls over it.

i am very much into privacy of my personal information (this is what i do for a living) but i dunno how 3 letters on an upgrade list probably 1/20 of the people on a flight would bother to look at infringes on anyone's privacy (and the consequences of this lack of privacy)....i guess if you didn't want a stalker seeing if someone with the same first three leters of your surname and first initial that you flew between two cities?

cur, I didn't see a or in your respond, so, not sure if you are joking or serious. Hence, thought to comment that I think what canopus27 is referring to a flight showing J = 3 available while currently on the waitlist.

Ben L a few years back had posted this as the reason.

I is for rewards. R for upgrades from flex. Upgrades from Y/B come from P (international), Z (NA).
