It's really not that different than any other time you have to sit a few rows away from the kids... so long as your kids won't keep running up to you in First and annoying all the other passengers, NBD.
This is a different destination, than what we've discussed. Still haven't made up our mind about that...
Check your PMs and just keep me informed
Looked at upgrading to first after buying coach, and it was the same price. Ticket price jumped now, since it is in the afternoon, so will probably buy in the am.
Yeah, technically it's not "upgrading" the ticket. On low (business) volume flights many airlines will offer you "upgrade to first" at the same time they offer more legroom, priority boarding, or any of a hundred other "extras" during the purchase. IF they offer, it can be a steal. As for instance, I just went to NYC from Denver on about 12 days notice. Price for a Frist class seat was ~$1200. Price for my cattle class seat was $210. Even before finalizing my seat purchase, the first class offer was to pay ~$350. It just depends on the airline, historical loading factors for that flight, how close to departure date, etc. Of course, this is only possible on the airline website, not other agencies.
Enjoy your vacation!
