Hi Everyone, I'm booked LHR-DFW-LAX on Saturday and it is pretty full F0/J2/Y4. I'm thinking NO upgrade is happening on this one...which is okay as I paid for a fairly cheap Y ticket. The direct LHR-LAX flight is F4/J5/Y7 with lots of seat options in Y. While I actually prefer the layover on such long flights (and a few more EQM), is there any chance the airport might consider putting me on the direct flight with minimal or no cost? I know I can ask, and at worst they say no, but figured I'd solicit the forum's thoughts. I will of course ask once I'm at the airport...carry on only this week. Thanks!
