How do AA System Wide Upgrades (SWU) Work For Executive Platinum Elite Status?
When it comes to using System Wide Upgrades (SWU) or mileage upgrades on AA’s long haul flights, on departure date if there are still unsold seats in business/first, do they all get assigned to pax who are still waiting for their upgrades to clear?
Is there ever a situation where a flight might take off with unsold premium cabin seats even though there are pax on board whose SWUs or mileage upgrades did not clear?
Also, if two pax are both EXP and have identical 12-month rolling LP balances, and one is trying to use an SWU and the other is trying to use a mileage upgrade for the same flight, does the SWU get priority over the mileage upgrade?
