This on a paid $770 OW F class ticket.
For future reference to all those who may be affected. Having a reservation and an OPEN paper ticket issued by another airline is not the same as a "ticketed reservation".

Until said open ticket is attached to the reservation, what you have is a basically a voucher worth $770 and an unticketed reservation. As the reservation was unticketed, its entirely feasible that between the time of the call 1 hour prior to departure and the actual time the open ticket was presented to "pay" for said reservation, the seat had been taken to accomodate an already ticketed passenger.
