DATE: 2/6
FLIGHTS: AS330 SEA-SJC, AS2757 SJC-BUR
MVPG
Fare class R; ticket purchased 23 Jan
AS2757 UG cleared at T-72 hrs
AS330 -- after OLCI at T-24 hrs, website says "First Class waitlisted, Premium Class waitlisted"; iPhone app doesn't show me on either list

GATE UPDATE: not on list of ~20 appearing on the monitor; GA could see that I had requested both, and that I’d be somewhere around #15 ... there were 4 unassigned middle seats in PC that had apparently been turned down by at least a few of the folks higher on the list

2/7 AS2840 SEA-ABQ MVPG R -Didnt Clear
2/9 AS2795 ABQ-PDX MVPG R T68

Didn't auto upgrade on either flight. Called in and the agent was able to process the upgrade on the ABQ-PDX flight at T68.

Allowed to select a premium seat on the SEA-ABQ route, but elected to have my own row with 9a & 9b. I'll take shoulder over leg room any day.
