Pending upgrades

How long before the 24-hour check-in window do Upgrades remain pending? I have an Elite Shorthaul Recognition Upgrade "pending" for a flight tomorrow

You値l usually find that they値l process upgrades when check-in closes (1.5 hours before departure apart from USA flights which are 2 hours) as they値l know how many seats are left then. They also might then process again just after bag drop closes (1 hour before departure) as that痴 the last opportunity for stragglers.

Just refresh your app around 1.5 or 1 hour prior to departure and you値l see a new seat assignment if the upgrade has been successful and a note telling you to pick up your boarding pass

Thanks for the very detailed response. Having checked in the App is now showing "Upgrade requests are still being reviewed and will be confirmed at the gate". Expert Flyer's "Seat Alerts" App is showing two empty seats
