My fav op-up story as a UA 1K on LH was from about 10 years ago. My husband and I were flying TXL-MXP (prob via FRA. I forget).

As is often the case, he took more time than I would have liked to get out of the hotel, and we left within 50 minutes of departure time. I was NOT happy with him.

We got to the check in counter 15 minutes before departure. They had given our seats away (two aisles across from each other). They then printed me a C boarding card. Husband got Econ, toward the back (but not a middle).

Historically, I always would give him the upgrade. This time I didn’t.
