Because my plane tickets for this trip were purchased so late, I got an awful seat on my return flight tomorrow, 31C, which, on a 757 is the very last row. I had upgraded coming out, and put in an upgrade request going home, but my request for the return flight was waitlisted. This morning, I was notified that my upgrade went through, so I won’t have to sit smashed in at the very back of the plane tomorrow.
