Was informed that upgrade requests are now automatically applied for EXPs. Was reviewing all my upcoming flights after the program merge; yes, my tin foil hat twitches a lot. I discovered a segment that was marked as upgrade requested. I did not request it and left it off specifically because I am traveling with other passengers who won't be upgrade eligible. Called in to ask that it be removed and was provided the explanation of why it had happened while taking care to remove me from the list.
