Talked to my wife about it and we decided the last thing we want to do is get stuck in middle coach seats for 6 hours so we had them switch us to a 6am to ORD with a 90 minute connect on to YVR all on UA metal. That is done, second lady I talked with was much more helpful and also had no idea why the seats were not yet released but F is booked full at 8 pax. Yes, these are changes we love, these are the changes that have us looking elsewhere now. Air NZ was great, hopefully AA/BA will be great going to Europe in Sept.....
If your flight is not imminent, I would have waited to call until at least tomorrow or Tuesday. Sometimes those changes are short lived, and a 738 might reappear on that route.

Depending on flight timing, connecting in SEA with AC may have been valid in this case. Also I assume you rechecked the SFO schedule.
