What are the logistics of arranging an inter-cabin swap like this, particularly on a domestic/narrowbody flight?
Do you make the swapee swim upstream all the way to the front while boarding is underway? Do you swap boarding passes so the swapee doesn't get accused of poaching by an FA (or busybody FTer)? What about privacy? (name/AAdvantage #)
Do you try and get the GA to arrange this in advance? I presume they might prefer to give the upgrade to the next pax on the list but then two pax have to be re-seated in the system, and if the flight is full that sounds complicated. Maybe they can be easily convinced to page the potential swapee?

Hmm...lots to think about!
