Change to a Later Flight (Sameday Confirmed Standby)

My sister is flying AirTran on Friday from BOS to BWI. She's on flight 402 now, and would actually prefer to take flight 497 that leaves 40 minutes later.

I'm not understanding why this is such a big deal, or why she didn't just pick 497 when she bought the ticket but anyway...ExpertFlyer is showing no availability on 402, and 497 (the flight she wants) is wide open.

She called, and they told her to just show up on Friday (presumably either after 402 has left, or after checkin has closed), and if there are seats she can get on 497. Obviously, you risk getting stuck if 497 suddenly fills up.

Does AirTran do a confirmed same day standby? Is there anything else she can do short of buying a new ticket?

Thanks!

Alex
