makes sense if it's a weekday departure and the flight is under 2 hours. Often lots of business travelers (read people with A-list or A+) will be on those early flights to make morning meetings in the arrival city (I've seen this a lot in intra-CA). 40+ A-listers in front of me has happened before. While A+ members should get better numbers than A-list, it's unclear how order is determined within those tiers, but there's been a lot of speculation here about it
