help needed please

I know someone on here will know the answer
I have an upcoming 241 redemption in club world but the last few weeks same day availability has opened up in first
Obviously hoping for the same on my travel date but need to know if checking in at T-24 into club will prevent me from being able to upgrade if first is available
Thanks in advance

OLCI does make it slightly harder to upgrade (I'm presume you mean for Avios). So you can either not do OLCI, or persuade the agent to offload you to enable you to upgrade. Occasionally you hear of agents suggesting that it's not possible to offload, but in reality it's not that difficult to do. The availability is likely to come online around 01:00 hrs UK time, so the compromise is to OLCI at that point if there is no availability.

[Incidentally, it's always good to put a few specific words of description into the title, it helps other people searching in the future. Not a big issue, but it all helps!]
