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 didnít.
Was the flight delayed or something? What was the check-in cutoff? Iím trying to picture getting from the check-in counter, through security, and to the gate before they close the door on the flight.
