To select a seat or not>

Jump to last reply

I'm booked next week on a domestic flight that showed no seat availability (other than premium economy seats) at the time of booking.

There are still 10 or so premium economy seats, but no regular economy.

So is it better to

* watch for open seats and select the first one I see, regardless of how desirable I think it is?

* watch for open seats but only select one if I am happy with it?

* just wait until I check in online, or get to the airport, to see what I am assigned?

I'm guessing the airline will end up bumping people with status (which I don't have) to the premium economy seats, thus opening up regular economy, but I have no idea if that actually happens. Of course what I wish is that they would just put ME in premium economy, but it's a plane, not a pig.

(For what it's worth, this is on American. Does the airline affect which of the above is the best option?)

THANKS!
