Seat Assignments Jumped

Checked on my seating via the iOS app for a PDX-DCA flight and noticed my assignments had been moved to the back of the cabin for both segments. For my Y flight I moved from 7 to 30, and my F from 2 to 3. The Y seat I was in was then filled by someone else when I discovered this. I found a similar seat, but it was an odd thing to see I was pushed to the back of the cabin on both. Anyone else seen that?

This is a known problem with equipment swaps. If you have enough pull/status with AS they may move you back. More likely is that you can call in and get some miles or a (small) discount code if you're unhappy.

Back as MVPG, I got switched from Premium aisle to standard aisle in row 28 with a swap. Took 2 calls just to get a standard aisle near the front, and I think even for that they may have booted a non-elite to the back. Good luck!

Ah that makes sense. Luckily this flight is empty up front. Maybe a third of PC taken. So no harm. Just a surprise!
