Sounds like it worked out for the best. 1A got a better seat in 2C. It does often seem to be the people in Row 1 trying to make the switches (because they are usually the last picked, I'd imagine)...

Considering ANC-HNL is the Club 49 weekly deal this week I'd say that, yes, they are trying to push those seats hard. $438/rt from Anchorage is a pretty good value.
