Hi Folks -
I'm booked on AC881 CDG-YYZ in late September, and at the seat selection stage, the entire Y cabin is X'ed out, except for 7 Preferred seats. I don't require one of these, although it could be nice, but I'd rather not have to pay $75 for one. Looks like this flight is almost completely sold out, (perhaps even oversold), so I'm wondering what to do.
I could inquire when checking in for my outbound flight next week, and perhaps be assigned something...( I realize that certain seats may be held until before departure)
I could wait until check-in at CDG and be given one free of charge. I also realize there could be no-shows, resulting in me being given one of those seats - but at 6'5", I'd rather not be stuck in a middle.
I highly doubt I'd be upgraded to Executive Class - I don't have the status, someone else would be upgraded before me...
