Well, then, the AFA needs to blame Boeing, Airbus, and most of all Bombardier for making planes so much less expensive that the airline industry has completely changed and the fare paid by the...

Stay off anyone's RJs. Period.

Another option would be the US shuttle from LGA to DCA, then cab or something out to IAD. Probably not as attractive as flying UA EWR-IAD, but it's a viable choice...

If you get to the airport early, your bag is likely to go on that earlier flight anyway.

I've had it happen several times. Get to the airport early for whatever reason, decide not to stand by for...

Don't forget the 2-class 763s. Those things are packed so tightly with seats and have such small bins that anyone who boards late risks not getting space for carryons, be they seated in row 1 or row...

No, it probably just makes the ground staff a bigger bunch of boobs.

Doh! I misread that badly.

So, yeah, the GA did it properly.

And for the OP, the odds of keeping an upgrade are somewhere between slim and none when you stand by.

Next time, don't show her your BP. Tell the GA you're in paid F on the later flight and you'd like to get on this one. I'll venture that the GA probably assumed you were had upgraded to F. The...

Are you kidding?

No airline other than UA has ever rudely dumped a passenger because of weather and given no compensation?

One hour for a trip you really want to make isn't much room for any problem no matter what airport you're connecting in.

Add in an upstream connection in DEN, and you're looking for trouble.

14 CFR 250 does not apply, so no IDB compensation:

Well, from within the US of A, United gives a 24-hour free cancellation period. If you're in that window of time and UA allows it for where you purchased your ticket, maybe you can make a change.

The parent post did say he woke up to find the seat opponent digging through "his" seatback pocket. Maybe the digger didn't want to wake him?

If LAX-MCO is its usual Airbus, row 6 seating isn't much worse than F, if you can get it.

FWIW, you probably get more legroom in row 6, although the seat isn't as wide and it doesn't recline as...

When UA was flying 747s between IAD and LAX in the summers, I got row 15 many times - probably 15 or 20 times.

I never saw a FAM take row 15.

And I'd venture to guess that a much higher...
