Do waitlisted WP passengers usually get on flight?

Do passengers waitlisted for WorldPerks seats usually get on flights? Of those readers have been waitlisted many times, how often have you not gotten on your flight?

I am waitlisted for a business class seat on flights from the US to Asia. The flights are in about 30 days. Can one usually expect to get on flights like these?

And how often does NW usually notify you that you have been placed on a flight?

There is no standard answer that would mean much for your specific case, although there are probably going to be people with experience on those flights who can provide a little insight. In the meantime, you might want to run your itinerary through a tool to see how many seats are currently open that you could potentially find yourself sitting in:


It's possible that you can at least get a little bit of a feel for your chances...
