    I’m a firm believer that FT is directly responsible for more than its fair share of air rage (not necessarily accurate in this example but have seen a few posters get kicked off flights because of FT induced delusions).

    I’m just trying to figure out where a 4.5 hour United flight to IND originates?

    I personally would be more than happy to “meet” the OP, ok first things first, if the computer “error” gave them first class seats, they had to have been in the upgrade queue at some point, and perhaps the person who took their current seats was a novice or “kettle” as some like to say.

    Secondly, the fact that you are flying what used to be a bereavement fare has nothing whatsoever to do with any other passenger, you don’t have dibs on the seats at all. If United’s seat assignment screwed up, then it’s totally on United , not on anyone who happened to look on the computer and take an open seat when it was available. Screw that lady. There is no “justifiable” rage over a seat against another passenger. If you are disturbed, your issue is with the airline.
