If you're talking about the Preferred Seat in Premium Classes, I saw that too, and my travel agent explained it to me. My first impression was that you get to sit in business class seats but instead of fine business class dining, the FA's toss cans of sardines in your general direction .

My agent is less cynical. He said this is a service on planes that have a business class section but no business class service. The upgrade is for passengers who want the comfort of the business class seat even though the service is the same throughout the aircraft. I think he said there aren't a lot of flights to which it would apply.

On most airlines that would be the case, but on LY it's not a matter of no business class operating on the flight (extremely rare for them not to operate business on the L/H aircraft) but simply opening up a section of business class to Economy passengers.
