Wow that is a pretty hefty list for a place like BUF. I wonder if that's similar to RSW or MKE in that it's an elite-heavy airport despite not being a DL hub or focus city.

As I quickly glanced at this post, I thought that it said "ITH-LGA," and my hopes soared!

PM on an award ticket with reserve card:
6/29 SLC-LAX round trip; both legs cleared at the PM window.
6/30 SLC-BOS cleared at T-96 or so, but will likely cancel this one.

Rollover DM, BOS-RSW on 6/30, L fare, 737-800. Cleared to C+ at booking. There was 1 F seat available at check-in; I was 1/15 on the list for the entire check-in process and I was cleared into F about 60 minutes before scheduled departure

Return trip RSW-BOS on 7/1, L fare, 737-800. 1 F seat opened up and 2 people with what appeared to be the same last name jumped ahead of me on the upgrade list. At RSW, the gate agent paged them and asked if they wanted to split up or remain together. They chose to split up so I was 2/16 when the flight went out.
