AS #2075
FCA-SEA
Cleared around 40 min. prior to departure

This was a weird one....figured this would be a slam dunk since I was 3/3 with at least 6 seats available in F yesterday....woke up this morning without the upgrade but the first two were upgraded already. No U space opened up even an hour before departure when there were still 4 seats for sale in first, but of course folks weren't offered the chance for a paid upgrade without U space so AS lost potential revenue for that....eventually went out with 1 empty in F....very odd, but nice to fly the E175 on a route where I'm normally in the Q400.

B Fare
2 of 30 on waitlist

On this route I can’t be too optimistic. Interesting to see my B fare wasn’t enough to dethrone others.... But there is a 75K in front of me in row 6 so the competition is fierce. Didn’t even get to snag PC until two hours before.

That is a weird one. I had a similar situation last week when traveling with a non-status colleague. No U ever opened, but waitlist had already been cleared. He asked the gate agent and they were able to sell him the U/G. I wonder if that's how yours filled as well?

I'm also looking forward to seeing the E175 on SEA-GTF this summer as I've got several trips booked on it and it'll be a welcome change to have an F cabin on that route.

Totally mixed. Lot of Sunday night flying back to Seattle.

Might strike out though -- have a flight SEA to FAT tomorrow and so far no upgrade
