Now unable to load seatmap in the app, but website/GDS is having no problem. This is going to be annoying...

EF: all F seats blocked, all J (and Y) seats available
Exactly the situation I'm seeing today for my mid-March flight. Which reflects the "real" status-the Web or the App?

Did you have the Operation Watchitlikeahawk twitch and constantly refreshing/checking?

Yes I did.
I guess I need a program to alert me if it changes.
(and now after reading the article on UA1_flyer, I now fantasize about how life would be if I never had to worry about seating)

so I moved it back to 20D (which was still open) aircraft looks to be configured for the new premium-plus seating.
we will see how it looks again in the morning. just gotta whatchitlikeahawk.........
Looks to me like UA relabeled the aisle seat in the left section of the PP cabin of the 772 Polaris from C to B. Guessing that, as a result, I was thrown off my 21C seat to 31D in the past 24 hours. Just moved myself back to the original seat.

This and the ongoing "PZ" mess make me think UA has poached some folks from Marriott IT.

I have been checking the seat map for my TPAC more than 20 times per day in the last few days. This will probably have to be categorized as a new OCD syndrome?

Stressed out? My wife is getting really upset about his situation. Now she says that if she loses her good seats on our trip to Europe in March she will start flying BA again..... even for flights to Asia.......

at first, I was only checking it once a day... then I noticed a pattern, many seats in the E+ section(and possible PP sections 19/20/21) become unassigned... then assigned a few hours later. This pattern has repeated itself many times... I noticed it more and more after I've been checking the seat map several times a day. (even kept the screenshot to make sure that I wasn't remember it wrong)

Watchitlikeahawk is in motion for me. We are within the twilight zone of T-72 and I went from bulkead aisle in E+ to window seat in row 32 (was able to move myself back (for now)). Previously it has always swapped like for like for me but I know that is not everyone's experience and perhaps I was lucky. Or something has changed in their reseating algorithm merry-go-round.
