United Four Across in Biz Class

Jump to last reply

I'm wait listed for a biz class seat on a UA international flight in October, reservation made back in May. Just viewed the seating chart and see most window/aisles are blocked off at this point. Wondering about the comfort level of center in the four across seats which it looks like I would be assigned one of, should the (elusive) upgrade come through.

I had requested an aisle seat when I booked, but it looks unlikely. Should I hope the upgrade doesn't come through and be happy with my window bulkhead in EP? Argh! The agony of the flying experience continues! There's a $200 change charge to cancel the upgrade request and restore the 20,000 miles, not to mention the bite that would be taken out of the $475 one way upgrade cost that was paid up front. Don't want to even think of the return right now, where the upgrade was $550.

Frequent Flyer programs just ain't worth the hassle anymore. I will use up my miles on domestic tickets and plan for the next overseas trip is to book EP on an international carrier just for that experience, instead of being loyal to AA and UA. I understand Lufthansa and KLM have decent EP offerings.

Thoughts - commentary?
