That would be interesting, since there are no row in the middle section. What date?

Flying aa2420 lax-dfw tomorrow at 6am. Previously had 20A, requested upgrade didn't go through at 24 hours (PLT) so I took a look to see if a better MCE opened up due to someone else upgrading. No dice on the MCE 22 hours out, but 14 hours before the flight I looked again and 17AB both available to be selected through iPhone app. Now hoping I don't get the upgrade and also that I don't get bumped from these seats. If I get bumped ill report back.

So, they upgraded me like 20 minutes before the flight. Was in AC and they printed out a boarding pass for me 45 minutes before flight showing 17A as my seat. When i got to the gate 20 minutes before flight they scanned it and stopped me, saying someone else's name was showing up for that seat. She walks over to the other GA who hands me a seat for 5J upgrade. Interestingly, I had called approximately 10 hours before the flight to remove myself from the upgrade list, and was told by the person on the PLT phone line that she had removed my request to be upgraded. I haven't checked to see if stickers were taken from my account or not. I didn't really want to use the stickers once I was confirmed in 17A. Someone apparently flew in 17A, but I didn't wander back to see if it was another regular passenger or if it was a crew member or something.

Edit: Ha, i went to check my 500 mile upgrade balance and there is an error message that it is not currently available.

Well known bug. You'll have to call to find out your balance.

I was also clued in that the seats won't be given to PAX unless the flight is completely full (as ours was).
This is the official policy, but it all depends on which agent you get. I'll happily open row 17 for a friendly passenger on a lightly loaded flight, generally trying to keep half the seats blocked as a courtesy to the FAs.

The way the 763 seat map is loaded, the seat is Z-blocked and can be opened by any airport agent as T-24 hours, but many gate agents take all of the Z-blocked seats under their control (appearing as T on the seat map) so they can have greater flexibility with reseating. I would probably do the same if I was a gate agent.

I had an equipment sub from a 757 to a 763 on my DFW-MIA flight last week, and the ticket agent at PHX was able to assign me 17J.

I don't know why a union would be brought up since AA's reservations and airport agents are non-unionized and voted the CWA down in December 2012.

I'm assuming they were talking about the FA unions.
