Shouldn't've said anything about first class! (211.8)

My first flight this afternoon started out delayed a few minutes, because the incoming PHL-ITH flight was delayed, but now it might leave as much as two hours late! That would make me miss my connecting flight, and they've put me on a later flight on which there's no first class seat available. I'm in the system as a "first class passenger without a seat," with a seat in coach selected, so in theory, if there's a no-show, I'm first in line for an upgrade, even ahead of Platinum members. Not holding my breath.

Of course, I'm still hoping the incoming flight will arrive when the tracking page says it will (estimated 2:06) and they'll turn it around fast and I'll make it to PHL in time for my original flight.

Meantime, I'm eating a cheeseburger! My original plan of a quick snack at Chick-Fil-A before enjoying a first class dinner a few hours later is no longer in the cards.

For those who want to play along at home, flights are

Update: Went through security; we might as well be ready when they are! Though they say departure is still 3:42, thanks to expected ATC delays from PHL.
