Yes, it is automatic. However, they may be a time lag between UA opening I space and a waitlisted segment clearing so it can pay to watch the reservation.

This. It's not cheap, but it's not crazy either. Don't use the miles if you're getting around 1c for them -- if you don't want to use cash just use the UR points at 1.5c each.

So, I actually pulled up my timetable and I'm a little confused. If price were no object, how would you plan to get to IAD "before 3pm Monday"? The early morning IAD flight (UA291) arrives at...

I would just call Turkish -- with the ticket number and pax names they should be able to assign seats and tell you what the TK PNR is.
