Confirmed Upgraded on 2 similar flights?

I am travelling YYZ-LHR tonight and thanks to the generosity of a member here I am currently sweating an upgrade. I am on AC 858 departing at 23:55 and waitlisted on it. AC 848 was meant to be departing at about 8:30PM, but that has been delayed now until midnight. There is 1 seat on my flight (was full, but 1 opened up in last hour or so) and there are 7 seats available on AC 848. However looking at the upgrade lists, I see that 2 people are on both lists and confirmed on them both (assuming the are the same people, but of course could be a coincidence).

Is this common when flights are delayed, or is this just AC IT?

As an aside, AC 848 has been wildly fluctuating. It was 3 available a few hours ago, then went up to 9 and then down to 7

So many possible explanations. They could have been protected due to the delay, they could have changed their flight, but the list didn't remove them, they could be employees traveling confirmed J and simply double booked in case one gets canceled.

i was already booked in PY (N fare)

The delayed 848 looks wide open, and they said that they can put me on that, but want to guarantee the upgrade before moving. Working on it

Just do it. They've already cleared upgrades on 848, and there are still 5 seats.

Glad it worked out!

Karma was good to me. Today I went to do my eUp for a flight on the 14th - turns out MSP-YYZ-YVR was only 5 credits - makes no sense but it meant I could do both segments instead of just the 1 as expected.

Long and short of it is there is enough credits for both of us to ride in comfort over the next couple of weeks. No R space for your flight home (or any flights that day for your route) but lots of J space so I hope it works out.

If I understand the way EF works I believe someone could get notified if R space opens up on a particular flight? If anyone has access to this and is willing to monitor it for @pmarrsouth then I could always cancel and re submit the eUp request. Let me know if I have this correct and OP can give his flight details if he so desires.

Anyway, glad you're getting to enjoy a Kit Kat. Or 6. I recently read here that it's apparently not taboo to stuff them in your pockets for later.

So, if you took AC858 I saw you this morning.

Let me know if you took pictures during your approach, would be funny.
