On my recent return flight from a wonderful 4 days of relaxing got to the airport and found out that a seat had not been assigned to my bff. We asked the agent could she find us 2 seats together on a crowded flight. She gave us a free upgrade to the first two seats on the plane which worked out perfectly because I am 5'9" and the extra leg room was a treat. JetBlue is my new go to airline. And the fact that it flies out of Reagan national airport is a plus. I live in dc and I can get there by subway or Lyft and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
