United Airlines "companion pass" rules

Can someone who works for United Airlines tell me the proper ettiquette for using a "companion pass"?  A friend is helping my wife to return from a summer long visit to her family in England.  I want to be sure we understand the proper expectations.  Is there a dress code?  What is the procedure for check-in?  etc.

You are on stand by. If the plane is full, you will have to wait until the next flight and hope to get on. If you wear jeans or look too casual, you will not get upgraded to 1st class or business class and will not get on that plane. I waited 12 hours in the airport when the storms hit the east coast - and was finally able to get the last available seat. So dress for success and be prepared to wait if need be.
