What is the date of travel?
Intersting to know; thank you! I would have assumed (based on past experience walking in the F cabin during boarding) that the F seats would be filled, either by mileage/SWU or 500-mile upgrades for EXP members. Given that my theory is wrong, and now noticing only 1 available Business seat on AA.com, it's best I assume that I will not be clearing at this point. Thank you!
