Had an interesting one last month. Was flying VAR-IST in Y and at check in they couldn't get my Elite status to show on their system or my BP (showed them my digital card on the app) and they couldn't decide how to get me into the lounge. The check in staff decided an upgrade to J was the easiest option, which was of course fine with me!

My first time upgrade. When I was on gate, I asked if plane was full and got positive response but they also said that is not overbooked.

Usually I board amongst first because of status but this time I decided to wait. When I boarded amongst last passengers the boarding machine played that beautiful sound that something is wrong and then I knew that upgrade will probably happen. So maybe boarding amongst last is the trick (plus full plane of course).

Congratulations on the upgrade, but AFAIK boarding first or last has zero influence as op-ups are decided after check-in closed/final pax list is printed at the gate before boarding opens. All my (frequent) op-ups at TK happened when I boarded among the first.
