Around 3AM Eastern, my upgrade for my DEN-SJC segment cleared 11 hours in advance.
Seat selection didn’t happen until I got to JFK in the morning due to some computer glitch, so I wound up in 1F.

Since my upgrade cleared only 11 hours out before the flight, I couldn’t place a vegetarian meal request by the 24 hour cut off. I ended up having the mushroom soup being served with the normal catering’s choices of chicken sandwiches and turkey salads and a snack box from economy as my lunch.
The audio jacks in seats 1EF weren’t working, so I didn’t have the chance to catch Channel 9. Nonetheless, it was a pretty good short-haul flight. The purser stayed attentive to the small first class cabin.
