Define dreadful.

I can reassure you that HP won't let you sit on a runway for 9+ hours without functioning lavs like a certain airline we won't mention.

Good Luck!
Thanks Snokums and Lifer... How do we check the loads of the respective flights? One more thing, I understand there's no charge for asking to be put on an earlier flight, but HP164 Economy is priced differently from other flights. Wouldn't that be an issue?

I was home when I checked on the HP employee website. The flights are priced differently based on loads so the cheaper fares are sold out on the more heavily booked flight!
You can call HP, explain the situation and ask how standby on the earlier flt looks. The agent shouldn't give you the exact number but should give you an approximation.
Hope this helps!
