That is an excellent idea and I will do it. My original seat was 5C, which is dramatically better than the no seat at all that I have now. Thank you!

I’m a very experienced flyer too, and checking a reservation once a week (on a flight booked 7-8 months out) would be preposterous. In the absence of notifications from the airline, I tend to check...

A few weeks from now I'll be flying MBS-DTW-ATL-MSY (incredibly, this was the best routing I could come up with to get home from MBS). Last November, I bought tickets for an itinerary that left MBS...
