Just got back from a same-day trip from SEA to visit the folks in SFO. Sadly, I missed an upgrade at the gate (#2 on the list, 1 seat left, they call #1's name 5 times and finally he shows up as seating area 2 is boarding... ). But then when I board to take my original E+ seat, they're passing out juice and water to E+ after finishing with F. Is this a new perk meant to somewhat compensate for removing snacks? Is it something specific to certain aircraft (this was a 757, which is almost more surprising since they have more pax to deal with). I did not see the same service on the way back, but the return was packed.
