I mean it’ll be completely empty and in the 40s most likely, not sure why going in the water would remotely be on your mind in the winter. This is the mid-Atlantic, we have winter, it’s not like Florida.

Thx in advance

I don’t have much experience traveling in (international) business class. I recently upgraded a flight for 3 people but I am hesitant to pay again to reserve the seats. As far as I know they’ll let me choose the seats day before departure. Question — am I taking any risk by not assigning seats? I’m guessing since I already paid, they’ll hold the seats for us. Granted we may or may not be able to sit together, I just want to make sure they’ll hold 3 seats.
