Who got EUA upgrade for flights to the DO?

EUA'ed - coming in on Thursday - BWI-IAH, 5 day EUA, which filled FC. On W fare.
Sunday return - no R inventory - but 10 FC unassigned.

Appears CO is processing some Plat upgrades at 5 days out on the BWI-IAH market to prevent it from becoming a B class only upgrade route.

Not here

Am on the party flight PHL-IAH so I am not sure if I even have a chance of being upgraded on an "S" fare.

"A" inventory does not matter for EUA. Check R class availability via mileage upgrade option. Although sometimes just before EUA - R opens.

My +3 day mark just passed with no EUA. It's EWR-IAH, so I'm not at all surprised.

Not yet, and almost pulled the trigger on a mileage upgrade today... Then I checked Expert Flyer... I may still have a good chance on an EUA.

(I am on NW from DTW-IAH)

Expert flyer is showing

First (Domestic) - Upgrade R 7
FIRST CLASS P 9
FIRST CLASS F 9

and the seat map is showing 9 unassigned seats. Hopefully this lowely SE will pull it.
