Assigning seats is hardly a modification to a booking. I never experience this unwillingness to lift a finger at other airlines, most notably not at UA. I always book through AMEX travel for my business itineraries and go through UA to make changes, cancellations, and whatever else while they have the same rule on the books.

There's just a culture of bad attitude at AC IMHO, and not just on the phone. I've experienced it on many many occasions and not just on the phone.
