we went sea-dfw on one airline and then dfw-sjd on AA and we got upgraded on the AA segment. I'm sure it was more due to the light load than the dress tho.

and take this on good authority, just because not as many people are traveling to Mexico right now does not mean there will be loads of open seats. most of the airlines have gone to a revised Mexico summer schedule involving smaller aircraft with a reduced flight schedule. so even tho the number of passengers total is less, there are less flights and less seats to get them there, so the flights are more crowded.

    Its really nice on long flights cause your seat lays down into a bed you can plug your laptop in etc

      In regards to Abs comments some of the BDW girls have even been put on standby do to airlines reducing flights and aircraft size. Although from what I know of Delta they haven't moved to smaller aircraft but have cut down their flights to one flight a day.

        I don't even know if our plane to PVR and back has 1st class ~ would be a super nice bonus though!! We are riding AA with FI's Dad who has Elite status with them though. I'll be extra sweet to the gate attendant, thanks for that tip

          Good post, hadn't even thought about this, but we are getting to the airport early so we will make sure to see about getting on the waitlist! Would be a nice perk :)

            We flew US Air and were not offered an upgrade at check-in, so DH paid the $100/ea to have us upgraded. We were not first to board so there was no place to hang my dress, but I laid it on the top in a compartment after everyone put in their luggage and it traveled beautifully.

            Turns out, our only other guests on that flight were also in First Class and we were in the same row as them, opposite aisle, so it worked out perfect! And the extra $100/ea to upgrade was worth it - although free would have certainly been better, lol.

              i was, but it was because hubby and i both were platinum elite since we travel so much. my guess is that we wouldn't have otherwise, unless there was a really friendly gate agent.

              i was going to say the same thing as ann...you have a better chance being upgraded if you have a special membership status with the airline than if you were getting married, on honeymoon etc.

                I found this website through tripadvisor where it shows you were your seats are, how big your airplane is and what class your seat is (1st, business, coach, etc.) and what type of closets the airplane has. You just need to know your airlines and flight #. Hope it helps all of you!

                  Thanks for that website; I just found out we are in crappy seats for a 9 hour flight, so I am off to request other seats. Thanks again - it's a very helpful site.
