For an upcoming flight I have, I applied RPUs to both of my kids' reservations and decided to float on the CPU system for myself. I thought we had a good chance of clearing. Alas, I was wrong. But, I was puzzled when I saw the actual list. For purposes of the discussion, I'm a 1K and I bought my ticket 6 months ago (a rarity for me) in a lower fare bucket. My kids ended up 2 and 3 on the list, with me in 7th. Just curious. I didn't think RPUs would have a higher status than CPU once the check-in window open, but maybe I'm remembering it incorrectly.
