    Darned if I know the longhand for "FFCC". At the old UA it meant a passenger with a business or first class award ticket, who couldn't be confirmed in that class on one/more segments until the time of travel. FFCC status meant the passenger was at the top of the list to be accommodated in the ticketed premium class if there were any premium class seats available. Technically not an upgrade.

    Fast forwarding to 2014, does UA still place folks like this at the head of the queue on United flights? How about if the itinerary includes Star carriers - does the passenger rate for United flights in that itinerary? (Apparently those itins can't be waitlisted.)

    How best to alert 1K or airport folks of the priority, when they assign premium class space on the day of departure?

    You should already be at (or near) the top of the list. If you're not ask the agent to confirm that you are showing as a displaced F/C passenger.
