I’m booked on a flight that has every single seat assigned in coach. Yeah, no need to stop the press, though since it’s a first, I’ll mention it nonetheless.
Most shocking of all is that this flight is over a week out. Maybe this is normal for those that fly other airlines, though even on the most grossly oversold United flights, I’ve never seen every single seat assigned on a United mainline flight. At the very least, a few middle seats will stay empty, as many people choose to not assign a seat over selecting a middle seat in the last row. That’s why United almost always has a list of people “confirmed awaiting seats” at the gate. In this case, though, even every exit row and Economy Plus seat is taken.
Not feeling too good about the upgrade, though looks like some bump potential!
