Hey all, not sure if this is the right place to put this. Yesterday I was flying an AA domestic flight on a standard economy fare (not discount). I checked in online probably 23 hours before the flight and received my boarding pass with a seat listed. I spent my time in the AA lounge, I am a Qantas Plat/OWE. When I got to the gate, I was pretty certain I saw my name with the green check on the board on the standby list? (I'm like 99% sure). I'm just curious, this is the first time this ever happened to me. I boarded in group 2 ahead of 90% of the flight. Was this telling me that I was eligible to be bumped? The flight was oversold as they were announcing compensation options to volunteers.

Was it the upgrade list? Maybe they upgraded you to main cabin extra

I suspect your answer lies in the other 1% of your certainty ...
