For me, it's usually the first available seat from the front of the same kind (aisle/window, maybe even the same side) as my original Y seat, excluding bulkhead. My profile says aisle, but I get window if I was in a window before the upgrade. I found this to be pretty clever (for UA IT anyway) but apparently YMMV?

Filling from front to back makes sense at least on meal flights, now that meal orders are taken from front. On 757s I might prefer back to deplane quickly.
