    Excited for those who can go. Sadly, I can't get back from Rome quickly enough to catch it.

    Why were 12 seats blocked in F? In case it had to flip back to a -8?

    Yes, there were. Lots of upgrades at the gate and two on board.

    Just about 45 minutes left to go; flight has been incredibly smooth so far.

    Yup they set capacity at the 788 level in case of a last minute swap.

    They even parked the -8 at the adjacent gate, just in case. ;)

    Now if UA could just do that for every flight, we'd have fewer IRROPs issues :)
