Arrow I got/didn't get a MVP/GOLD/75K upgrade on AS (2015)

AS taketh away and AS giveth.....

So, all my bars are empty when I visit my account on AS, which makes me very sad,

but I just got the notice that my first flight of 2015 has been upgraded to 1D for my flight on Jan. 6, 2015.

Missed an upgrade on AS 805 (SEA-SMF) on 1/5/2015

When all was said and done I think I was 15th out of 18th for 3 upgrades.

I got upgraded on AS 102 ANC-SEA on 1/2 even though I was on a coach award - it was a very, very light flight and I asked nicely. (There were at least two open F seats at T-1 and only 44 pax in coach)

I got MVP for this year. I fly to San Jose on the 21st. Unfortunately, I'm on a mileage ticket. I posted in the Board Room thread, so hopefully I'll get that perk.

I would have no problem guesting someone into the BR, but like a lot of others, I access the BR with Priority Pass which allows no guests (not even my kids) so it's never an option for me (wish we got one free guest, but oh well).

Did you move back to lie flat Y after your F meal? I always have a hard time deciding whether to give up F for even more space in Y.

DL Gold and up fall behind MVPs, IIRC.

Upgraded 1/6 SJD-SEA +1 as 2015 MVP vs 2014 MVPG. Upgrade came through at about T-72 (on 1/3). I thought only MVPGs were upgraded at T-72 and I thought only MVPGs got +1 upgrades. Is it possible the system thought I was still MVPG in my reservation? My account status was reset to MVP by the time the upgrade cleared. Is there a delay in syncing status changes with reservations? I was not expecting to be upgraded. I was not even expecting to qualify for a myself+1 upgrade on 1/6. Any ideas? At any rate, I'm not complaining.

Sounds like as long as you don't make a change to the booking (or there is an operational issue such as a major schedule change that changes your ticket number) you keep the standing on the upgrade list when you were put on it.

More discussion about this can be found at this thread.

You obviously booked it as an MVPG so you inherited that status for the booking. This issue has been discussed recently in another thread.
