My wife just did a status match with United and she was granted Premier status, I believe it's also referred to as 2P, the lowest on the totem pole. She has a flight upcoming from SFO to MCI. It is a CRJ-700 with only 6 first class seats. The way i understand it she will automatically be upgraded to 1st class if those seats are available of course and she would be notified within 48 hours prior to departure. is this correct? if there are no 1st class available does she get upgraded to economy plus if available? is there anything she needs to do to increase her chance at an upgrade?
