While this does not apply to me, it does mean that upgrade chances for those eligible do DOWN.

Even more so with AS which has fewer FC seats on 737 than UA, where this has been discussed (u/g...

Granted, my experience is possibly worse than the average UA flyer, but even in my years as 1K, I almost NEVER cleared into FC domestic if it was not available at time of booking :( So:
