I should note, obviously I have SWU and choices of main cabin extra seating when I book in advance but I’ll remind you were in consulting and we tend to book a week early if we’re lucky

funny

Totally dependent on the days you fly. I assume that route has a lot of people paying for First / Biz.

^agreed. I've flown that route as AA gold and have been able to get bumped to business class. Plat Pro now and can't even manage to get upgraded main cabin extra sometimes

Mamy people on that route pay for biz.

You don't get upgraded to those classes on this route.. it's strictly buy and use

Guess who got Biz on the way back... Sat flight tho 🙄
