Well yes, but employers are typically looking to cut costs, and there's a reasonable argument that they shouldn't need to pay for business class on relatively short (e.g., <8h) daytime TATL flights. ...

Well, I guess their view is that if coach is oversold, then they shouldn't be adding new passengers onto the flight, especially if they can upgrade coach passengers into empty FC seats. I suppose it...

Well I obviously wasn't on the call, but I could certainly see the agent saying "you found a loophole" in a jovial, congratulatory way (unsarcastically). Or they could have been bitter about it, who...

I agree in general, but the free agent model is a lot less attractive when premium class fares are rising (especially relative to coach), which I see on many of my routes. I've been buying less...

Yeah, just do a multi-city search for your desired itinerary. The pricing engine will determine the appropriate way to price it - as a simple round-trip fare that allows a stopover (and the fee, if...

I'd even take an angled-flat business (e.g., much of AF) over a premium economy seat if those were the only choices.

It sounded to me like OP wants to merely swap upon boarding -- i.e., take the UC seat that was booked under his son's name. I don't even think you need to bring it to the crew's attention.

(Emphasis added).

I alluded it to in my post # 2 upthread, but suspect this may really be the crux of the OP's complaint. It's certainly been discussed elsewhere on FT, and most seem to agree,...

On the 763, the window seats are set further back, and separated from the lavs by closet space. You will not be able to see the lavs from your seat. You probably won't be able to smell them either,...

You earn 5x (redeemable) miles on the Amex Platinum (well, MR points, but they transfer directly into DL), why would you charge tickets to your DL reserve card?
