Click on "United air travel award rules:"
"You may redeem miles for travel in United Global FirstSM, United First®, United Business® or United BusinessFirst® , even if the space is not available. In these cases, United Economy in the same award type must be confirmed, and the front cabin will be waitlisted. For example, a Saver United First award must be confirmed in Saver United Economy to be eligible for waitlisting. If the courtesy waitlist does not clear, it will expire 24 hours before itinerary departure, and you will automatically be added to the airport upgrade standby list upon check-in. In these cases, you will be confirmed on a space-available basis by a United airport representative at the gate once the flight has closed for check-in. For United BusinessFirst and United Business travel awards, the difference in miles will be refunded when the United BusinessFirst or United Business class segment of the trip could not be confirmed. Waitlist requests may only be made over the phone with your local United Reservations office"

so you're saying it won't work? I'm just on the regular waiting list?
What about the fact that SHE messed up? Can I fix it, or is it too late being that it's past 24 hrs?

sorry for all the questions.
thanks again
Just call up and get them to take out the correct amount of miles.

Yes. It even works when there is no availability for revenue.

Thank you very much.

It worked!!!! Thanks Dan, and everyone!
I didn't do the actual Plan B at the airport, because I checked the day before, and saw that they opened up Business saver availability. I called up, and they manually upgraded me. It's not as cool, but it was better, because I was able to bring the extra luggage :)
