The agent who was checking you in was correct in the fees she was quoting you. The $250 was the co-pay for the mileage upgrade, while the $100 was the expedite fee for using you miles less than 7 days prior to departure.

As for the Premium tags, I am not aware of any "rule" that says that Elite passengers in Y should be given the tags. That said, there have been a couple of occasions where it was done for me -- but not usually.

Exit row on a 777.... as long as it was 31ABHJ, and not something in the middle, it sounds like your flight could have been a lot less comfortable . Welcome home.

Cheers.
