Probably not common but maybe the person got ill after boarding the plane (hopefully not contagious disease and still decide to travel), like back pain or something and really want a better seat at that point?

On one trip I had a really bad stomach flu on the day I need to travel back home. Luckily, I was in J and had a flat bed and that helped. If I was in Y, I would have asked for a possible upgrade in cash as my mind was like ''I don't care anymore, just want to lie down and get back home ASAP''!
