I have heard EUAs are supposed to run continuously from the 24 hour mark until the gate takes over control. My question is how often does 'continuously' really mean they run? Every minute? Every hour? To provide some background, I ask as I SDC'd to a flight at the 24 hour mark. It is showing R2 and it looks like all the other elites on the flight have been upgraded (the only other people on the upgrade standby list [which I know is only applicable at the gate, not for EUA] are also on the flight standby list so I figure they are non-revs). Its not really a big deal, I am just curious. Do I have any other recourse besides waiting for an EUA run? I know in days gone by elite line agents could upgrade you when there were upgrade bucket seats available, though I don't know if this was official policy or just friendly customer service.
