Wait, there are people who don't realize that when they can't get an assigned seat when they book the ticket (and it's not because they bought a special fare that doesn't allow a reserved seats), it's because the flight is oversold and they will be waitlisted for a seat? Every airline does this.

That's not always what it means when you have no seat assignment, especially with codeshares. I've bought tickets that had no assigned seat until checkin even though the flight was undersold.

This is that whole feigned surprise thing that Recurse Center bans, isn’t it?
