Thanks for the reply. Indeed, I am assuming that there will be Business -> First requests. I was working under the logic that since there were ample First seats available, at some point the airline would decide they are not going to be purchased and upgrade flyers into them. I can't imagine there'd be empty First seats at take-off.
