Standby?

I have a flight today, checked in online, but now it says Im on standby?  Has anyone ever run into this?  Maybe a glitch?

Was your original flight cancelled or delayed significantly where you would misconnect? That's usually the only time I see the airline put you on Standby without you going up to the counter and asking to be put on Standby. 

 

You can always ask a gate agent to remove you from the standby list if you didn't want that flight.

It was not, the connect flight from BWI to Tampa is ok, its just the first leg from BOS to BWI that shows as standby.  And its for today... not sure what to do, on my way now

When you arrive at the airport just ask the agent at the gate or ticket counter and they can assist.
