Not all flights have a first class, especially ones connecting smaller cities, like say Nashville to Raleigh. They usually show that alert at the time of booking. You also pay accordingly. Unless there's a last minute plane change that caused a "downgrade", they aren't gonna refund anything.

This one has a first class with 9 seats. All taken and mine is the first row of comfort plus. I distinctly remember selecting first class seats when I booked. My guess is aircraft change. Just hoping I can ask for a compensation of some sort.
