So I have a flight tonight at 9:30. I see on AA Site that business has no available seats. And I see that the later flight at 11:35 has a 6 or 7 seats open.
As an exec. Plat member and already requested an upgrade, is it worth it to wait till the 2nd flight? What's the chances of getting upgraded?

Why is 11:30 more of a red-eye than 9:30?

Frankly, I'm not sure where my head was when I wrote that.

@cbs -- definitely wait. The more comfortable you can be on a red-eye, the better you'll be  ;D

+1
I'm anyways taking red eye. And I'd rather get in earlier in the morning but if it'll be a much more pleasant flight to wait for business (and I'd like a good flight Cuz ill be in ny for 24 hours then returning to LA - confirmed upgrade on return) then ill wait 2 more hours and get in at 8am

What are the chances if there's 6 seats open now

I just called aa and they said there's 2% availability at 9:30 and 25% legal at 11:30.
From your experience, if I change to later do i have a good chance?
Less of a chance if I wait till I get to airport or do I cut the line?

Did they recently just add them. There is tons of availability for August which there wasnt before.

I never saw this layout of the 757 before.
