Seems to happen a lot, likewise time/plane changes

I booked Vegas for late November, in February. Since then, I've had two changes of plane/time on the outgoing flight (without any alert, by the way), including seat changes.

I can't speak for the US carriers, but I'm very used to VS's PE options, and use them whenever possible. A broader, more comfortable seat, with more legroom and much deeper recline (without annoying...
