I had a question about VX's main cabin select, given that the concept of this fare class is a bit different than others in the industry. I was booking a trip on the VX website and booked a return ticket in Main Cabin Select, using the instant upgrade fare bracket. When it came time to select seats for the flight, only the main cabin select seats showed up, so I was happy and booked a pair of aisle seats in the bulkhead row. I noticed that if you are seated in main cabin select, you don't only get the added legroom but (unlike on JetBlue) you get unlimited free drinks and food, as well as free entertainment (I'm assuming this means the movie channels). I thought that was a great deal.
So, given that it was a hundred dollars more per sector to fly in this class, I was wondering how VX does with its Main Cabin Select product? Is it a good seller? Does it actually make money for them?
Also a quick question about the product - when they say drinks, they also include booze right, given that all the other drinks are already free onboard? And when they say food, does it mean the BoB stuff coach gets that's free, or is it some sort of offering in between the BoB stuff and the stuff First Class gets?
Also, being a bit selfish here, but if you are in Main Cabin Select, what are your chances of getting bumped to F if the need arises? Say if coach is overbooked and F is wide open, are these passengers the first to get moved up front?
