Before I obtained Premier status, I used to just ask very politely at the gate. "Is there any chance of getting a seat in Economy Plus?" 9 times out of 10, they would do it if there was an aisle or window seat still available. If there wasn't, they would be reluctant to fill a middle seat (not that I wanted a middle seat).

Thanks for the tips.
I'm using my miles to go business class to Europe later this year, and a buddy of mine is coming along for the ride, but he bought a ticket in Economy. I just wanted to see what I could do to get him bumped up to Economy Plus.
I'll take your suggestions to heart.
