2. Would giving them a tip be a nice gesture just to thank them for working at such a late hour.. etc. etc..

3. Show up really early? - I would be thrown into nicer seats if no one booked them
Show up near boarding? - I would be thrown into nicer seats if they are open
Which is better?

Thank you in advance for any tips!
Unbelievable. If you want an upgraded seat, pay for it.
