I called AA Exec Plat desk to use SWU for my husband and I and there were no auto upgrade seats available for the flight we had selected. I told them to put us on the waitlist as they said the flight looked good (meaning there were a lot of seats still available). I would have booked another flight, but this one is direct from ORD to Rome and was on sale. The flight leaves on a Tues and comes back on a Weds (May 1-May 9). I am getting nervous as I want to make sure we are upgraded and think I should have looked for another flight. Has anyone had this happen and what do you think our chances are of being upgraded?
