I wish I'd had this advice a while back, flying MKE-SEA. There were 3 empty F seats - my wife & I (both MVPG) were top of the upgrade list. We took our assigned seats in PC, and waited for the GA to move us up before departure. Never happened, so I asked FA about it. "Up to GA" - but by then she'd left the plane and the door was shut. We took off with those 3 empty seats in F still empty. Very unhappy about AS since then.
