I'm traveling PDX-SFO this weekend on Alaska an know thta I can upgrade on the day of departure for $50. Is the upgrade worth it on such a short flgiht. I havn't flownh AS recently and am wondering if the fee is worth the upgrade? Any comments would be appreciated!

Thanks JeckPDX

Yeah It's worth it if you want the legroom. I heard first class service isnt all that great though. It's up to you though. If you do or don't want to upgrade to first class

For that short of a flight I would just try for an exit row.. not worth my $50.

If the flight is full, then I would upgrade. You won't get a meal anyways because you're upgrading day of. But if it is only half or 25% full, then it's not worth it. You can just get a row to yourself. But most of this route is now operated by Horizon's CR7s so first class won't even be an option. I believe the 37s are only used because they are continuations down to Mexico from SFO.

N888AS, I think you can get a meal if you upgrade day of flight....If I remember correctly from working with QX, the agent has to advise that a meal may or may not be available if first class is full....but as a non-rev, when I did get first on AS, I got a meal the one flight where one was an option....

As for if it's worth it... I agree with N888AS, if the flight is totally full, then it would be worth it. The extra leg room will be most enjoyed. Otherwise...I'd save my 50 bucks for things to do while in the city Smile

Thanks for the suggestions. The flight is on a 734 so first will be available.I will probably tak the upgrade if the flight is full

A light meal is served in First Class: a fruit plate with scone on the morning flight and either a sandwich or salad in the evening. Drinks are served in real glasses and the F/A's generally do a good job of keeping them full.

The First Class chairs are a lot wider than in coach, but due to the seat design, there isn't that much more legroom. If your after legroom, try for an exit row.

Unfortunately, odds are that if coach is full, First Class will be too. The $50 upgrade is much more difficult to get than in the past.
