this is the best time to ask for a seat upgrade

Timing is everything, especially if you want a good seat.

Flight attendants revealed that passengers who want to upgrade their seats should submit their request at the boarding door as soon as possible.

“You should ask prior to door closure, but don’t be surprised if they don’t move you until after you’re in the air if they’re going to grant your request,” Bobby Laurie, former American Airlines flight attendant, told Travel + Leisure regarding seat changes.

Passengers can submit an upgrade request between the booking and boarding process, but throwing down some cash or being a frequent flyer with elite status can increase their chances of getting what they want.

As boarding time approaches, flight attendants can see if passengers who booked business or first-class seats either missed their connecting flight or canceled their trip, allowing other travelers to fly in more comfortable seats.
