When you check in 24 hours prior, if you get a lousy boarding assignment, you can always upgrade to business select or whatever it's called...A1-15 when you get to the airport...if it's offered for your flights. It does usually cost $10.00 more than EBCI though.I know this is a subject that has been discussed over and over, but I'm debating whether to purchase EBCI. I wasn't going to, and now we're a month out from our trip and I'm second guessing myself. It has gotten so expensive & it kills me to spend that much for it. Plus I wonder how much good it will do us to book it so close to our flights. I'm traveling with my two teen daughters, so it's not the end of the world if we get separated, but I know they would greatly prefer to at least sit together, even if I can't get a seat with them. I am contemplating just buying EBCI for them, and having them look for an empty row & take the window and aisle, and hopefully no one will take that middle seat before I board. But since we're only a month from our flight, are we likely to get high B even with ECBI at this point? Flying Hartford to MCO and back, both times on a Thursday, late afternoon departure.
