I was on the SLC-MCO red-eye last Monday and we went out with 6 empty FC seats with no UGs on the list and only 1 non-rev. Y was ~90-95% full which makes this even stranger.

It happens. I had a recent AUS LAX flight. It was fill in Y, but I was only passenger in F. The flight timing being weird explains part of it, but have never seen it more then 2 seats empty in F. Mainline 738.

Lately I've been doing DCA-LGA-XNA each Friday.

Friday before last the LGA-XNA had one passenger in FC: Me. Last Friday there were maybe six of us. In both cases it was an ERJ-175 with 12 FC seats.

The only time I managed an upgrade to first was earlier this year on a Friday night flight DTW-DCA. There was a government shutdown most of that week, so we went out with three empty seats in first, clearing the whole list. As a silver on an award ticket, I definitely didn't expect it.

I thought I was going to see the rare empty F seat last week on a CR9 flight - when I cleared at the T-24 window as a Silver on an award ticket. But, no, every seat was filled.

Looks like there may be some empty FC seats (pending non-revs) on ATL-IAD tomorrow morning . Currently 9 out of 16 FC seats are empty and only 3 on the UG list.

Traveled on 7/4 ORD-ATL-PBI.
Had one empty FC seat on each segment,

Was an UG list and would assume lazy GA. ORD flight door closed 10 minutes early.

I flew Memphis–New York LGA on Saturday and the CRJ-900 went out with one empty first-class seat and nobody on the first-class upgrade list.

I then flew LGA–Pittsburgh and only three passengers were seated in the 12-seat first-class cabin on the E-175 flying this route. Again, nobody on the upgrade list.

Just a few days before Christmas 2018, I flew from MCI to ATL on the earliest flight of the day. Plane was completely full with the exception of the first class seat next to me. The person assigned to the seat never showed and the GA was not going to move anyone forward. Surprised me to say the least, but it was getting very near push back, and the GA said she did not want to delay the flight.

What would be the hazards of having the FAs perform battlefield UGs once the door is shut?
