    I have a UA itinerary (booked CO Flight numbers on UA metal) which has gone past the 72 hour checkpoint for upgrades.

    The segments used to say "Upgrade: Pending" now that notation is gone and it just says economy. Is this correct or should it say something like "Upgrade: Waitlisted"?

    Just want to make sure I'm being wait listed still for the upgrade.


    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, that's how it works on the codeshares.

    As long as you had the "Upgrade: Pending" message prior to the window, you've been properly transferred to the waitlist, even if the website doesn't show it.

    I've often seen seats available in F past my upgrade window, and I am still waitlisted. I imagine this will be more common on CO since they like to actually sell a seat rather than give them away to elites.
