Usually I'll list for the second flight and hope we get there early enough to make a dash for the first...I've had mixed results with that but it sucks having your PNR canceled if you miss the first flight and can't get to the agent in time.
This seems to be a common tactic. If you get on, please cancel your flight so others can see accurate information. Not singling you out! Mainline does this fairly often.

I always try to since I use United a lot of the time. I will forget sometimes but it's never intentional. I've noticed mainline guys not showing up for flights a lot, too, prob for that reason.

you must be at the gate for the agent to roll you over. they do not "always" roll you over if you do not answer or are not at the gate area, FYI

That's why listing for the earlier flight is such a gamble sometimes. It sucks to lose your checkin time.

List for the second flight. If you make it in early cancel your PNR then list for the first flight.

Itís a losing battle really. Mainline is a major offender and I have just come to accept that you canít really base what flight to list for based on the list. About all I use it for is jumpseat backup protection.

Flights I have been convinced I wouldnít get on due to being way oversold I do and ones I feel should be an easy go end up being a nail biter. Just list for the flight you need or want and go for it. Thatís how I do it. So far so good.

Don't cancel your PNR. Just have the agent move it over.

All you have to do is go to the gate for the first flight, tell the agent you're listed on the second flight, and they will simply pull the PNR over to the first flight. Takes them about 30 seconds. I do it all the time. It's normal stuff.

I don't think it's a secret hotel... They got signs and everything.
