Yep.



Thanks. And this is interesting. I might expect it to bounce back and forth across reservations, where one reservation always shows one way and another always shows the other. There...

I'm optimistic here. Let's see some data.

IF there is consistent enforcement and IF there is clear lane and BP differentiation, that will make the difference.

I've done this twice in the past few days.

On Tuesday night I saw R1 for my Wednesday afternoon flight, called, applied an RPU, and was cleared. It took about 15 minutes on hold.

Solutions

1) After you get kicked out, check Expert Flyer and see if your seat shows as "blocked."

2) If so, wait...

They really like to kick me out of 1B on 757s. Just happened to me again. Usually 2 days out.

As I said before, this particular problem is NOT caused by an equipment change. The seat gets...
