That's my main concern.

Right now LAX-IAH has 10/16 first class seats empty and IAH-LGA has 7/16 empty (but E+ has only 7 seats filled ).

It would be nice to actually get some use out of an instrument at some point, but as a platinum upgrades of any sort are pretty few and far between these days. The flight is in 20 days so we shall see...

Of course I could always buy up to first right now for $709/person with 6 seats available on each segment When I originally bought these tickets a week or so ago I could have paid less than $709/person in first so I'm not sure why they think I would pay that now (plus the original cost of the E tickets).
EDIT: I just checked and I can buy these exact flights from United right now for $503/person in first. Why would I pay more than that to upgrade it rather than just buy them from scratch if I wanted first that bad?
