This expert is helping you out because there weren't many active United Airlines experts.
You don't get on a standby list days in advance. What good would that do? You are STANDING BY. If you are an airline employee, you can list yourself up to 24 hours ahead of time. If not, you can list yourself at the airport with an agent, generally the day of departure. If you are holding a non-refundable ticket, you will pay a penalty for changing flights.
