I've confirmed everything, including the airline ticket.
This being a primarily leisure route, the first class section was virtually empty as I booked. I applied for an upgrade of my discount economy ticket, using my frequent flier miles; the request was immediately confirmed. In a more business-oriented route, I would've had no chance, as the paying business travelers and the elite-level frequent fliers would have had priority.
Looking forward to flying first class, observing first class procedures, and imagining Sarah or Martha perform those procedures. I'll be on Boeing 757s both ways - United's workhorse aircraft, and one that Martha would work most often (and even Sarah would work occasionally on her domestic runs).
