    Does the published upgrade list include those who've paid (in dollars or miles) for premium classes but haven't yet been accommodated on that segment because of sold-out conditions or misconnects? How about those in Y or B classes or folks who've committed an RPU or miles for an upgrade?

    If you are referring to the upgrade list that appears in the flight status window, -- afaik, it includes folks who've been upgraded with paid or miles upgrades & upgrade instruments, as well as CPUs. The upgrade standby list will show those pax who have checked in, & are waitlisted w/miles or upgrade instruments, along those eligible for a CPU, according to status, fare paid.

    Only thing to add here is the last sentence should include a, "and all non-rev standby passengers who are listed for the flight and who are eligible for an upgrade (e.g. employees)."

    So it sounds like just about everyone is on the list. Including every Silver and up, correct?

    It includes everyone who has been successfully upgraded, regardless of method. Unless you bought a first class ticket, you won't get to the front of the plane without being on the upgrade cleared list.

    And reward F is considered a purchased ticket. So Scottrick's post is still correct. Reward F will not show up because they are not an upgrade. Miles or cash both are a revenue ticket. Now mileage upgrade is an "upgrade" and will appear.
