    Flying UA 321 on Tuesday, and there are 7 seats in R. I'm Gold right now; that means I have a 48 hour window. Don't show on the upgrade list right now on the United app.

    Can I just call in to confirm the CPU? Past experience has me waiting till 24 hours; F is full and I'm halfway down the list.

    There might be a glitch holding up the upgrade and you can call it in for web support to investigate this particular one.

    As for being halfway down the list in the past which means there was a lot of Elites ahead of you (1K/Plat).

    You may not show up until 24 hours out. 48 hours means little with the new system. Any of my upgrades cleared inside 24 hours prior to departure. 1k, Plats and GS are already in front of you at this point.

    So don't call? The 48 hour thing isn't real right now?

    You could call them sometimes the upgrade thingy is broken anyways.

    No real sense in calling. I don't believe they can see an ungrade list. You can nudge if you are GS, and I have to do that about 50% of the time, but you can't nudge if you ar Gold.

    You can call but they won't clear you for free.

    But the new United will be happy to sell you the "complimentary" upgrade.
