Seemingly lucky. Flights over probably not clearing.

Really weird situation. Upgraded into U space for a flight tomorrow. System won't let me select a seat, so I call.

Agent said that I was upgraded into oversold F (oversold by 3 people!). So, the only option is to be forced back into coach or risk sitting in a middle seat in the back.

Great experience AS!

Interesting to note that my buddy who's flying with me on his own ticket, also a 75k, has not cleared on the SEA-RDU leg (nor on the return). I think we booked these tickets maybe a day or two apart, at most.

Date: 1/27/18
Route: RDU-SEA
Flight Number: AS753
Status: 75K
Fare Class: R
Cleared: 2 to 4 hours before departure
Date of ticket purchase: Dec 2017

the app UGWL was confusing as heck. Day before departure, my friend showed 5th on the UGWL on SEA-RDU and my friend and I showed 3rd and 4th, respectively, on the UGWL for RDU-SEA. The morning of, I check list and my friend got upgraded on both legs. He someone jumped in front of the people ahead of him. Now, on the return leg, I showed 3rd with a seat remaining. A few hours later when I land in RDU, i noticed I had been upgraded to F and jumped over the two people ahead of me.

I dont think the AS upgrade list was correct at all. I never checked the gate UGWL screen to compare if they were the same.

Remind the agent that you are entitled to downgrade comp in this case. Their shoddy IT systems are not your problem.

Upgrade at sometime before T-24, but not at T-48

DAL-LGA (AS 3326 later that day) I'm in PC, plus that and a return JFK-SEA on AS 7 (2/4) look pretty sweet for open F space, but nothing yet. Any day where you get upgraded on a transcon is a good day. This trip will get me over halfway back to MVPG by itself (sorry but not sorry @beckoa).
