    PEK-SFO for tomorrow, checked in 3 hours ago but not showing up on any upgrade list.

    I have a SWU and been on standby for ages, 9 C seats open, so i guess I might still have a chance at the Airport, but my name isn't showing up.

    Can it be because they need to check documentation in the airport?
    United screwed up system?

    Both?

    Be very upset to sit in my nice middle seat 13 hours ;)

    Thanks

    Clarkyboy.

    Welcome to MP! I'm assuming your flight has left at this point, but in the future you can check the UA website for upgrade inventory. If you see there's space in the R/RN fare bucket and your upgrade hasn't cleared, you can wait 24 hours to see if your upgrade clears automatically or give UA a call. If you don't see your name on the upgrade waitlist within 72 hours of the flight, give UA a call.

    Did your upgrade clear for the flight?

    Lizzy,
    Thanks for the answer!
    It was a huge ordeal with my SWU stuck in the system, and after talking to 5 reps, 1 of them was able to be creative and take yet ANOTHER SWU and upgrade me on the spot.

    i was promised the "old stuck " one would free up - crossing my fingers :)

    So happy to have been in business for 12 hours.

    Of course the TV didn't work and i got upgraded to FIRST!
