They still have that auto-upgrade fare. It's the A4 & B fares.

Is it similar to UA's "Business1" that they just re-started?
|Quoting FLY777UAL (Reply 4):|
Not in the least. Business1's perks:
Most convenient gates -- Business1 flights out of Chicago O’Hare depart from the Terminal 1, B Concourse. Flights to O'Hare from Business1 cities depart from our customers' most preferred gates at these airports.
Guaranteed on-time arrival -- United is offering customers on Business1 flights 500 redeemable miles if the flight arrives at the gate more than 30 minutes late, regardless of the reason.
More legroom with Economy Plus -- All United flights, including Business1 fights, offer up to five extra inches of legroom in our Economy Plus section. Economy Plus customers enjoy extra legroom, early boarding/deplaning and preferred access to overhead bins.
Complimentary newspapers and meal -- As a convenience for United First® and Economy Plus customers, we are providing a selection of newspapers on Business1 flights departing O'Hare and other Business1 cities at or before 10:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. A complimentary meal is served in United First on all Business1 flights during meal times, except on Chicago-Minneapolis flights.

Business Select (which I flew on on some BWI flights) I believe came
about the same time as USAir's wet-lease and code-share with BA.
Business Select basically was the same seat design as that found in
European Business Class...the middle-seat exists but the seat back is
put in the forward-down position. I believe this was due to the fact that
there was a moveable partition between the coach and the BS cabins.
You could move the divider based upon booking demands.
I believe only the 732s had this product, and I know BA had money
invested in US at this time, so maybe that was the influence for the
launch of this product, because it was gone after this "marriage" broke-off.

BusinessSelect had the unfavorable timing of being introduced the day flight 427 crashed. It was featured exclusively on the 732 fleet and only hit the BWI and LGA hubs. There were many problems with the movable seats and cabin dividers. It was eventually pulled before MetroJet was introduced.
