So it sounds like you don't REALLY care where you sit, but you care enough to either pay extra? Or you just want to pay extra not to see them walk on the plane ahead of you? You seem conflicted. It's your money. Just be sure you realize what you're truly paying for. In my opinion, the mere notion of losing $200 if I can't catch a flight, or decide to fly earlier in the day, is absurd. If it means watching annoying people board early, or cram oversized bags into the overhead that should have been (free) checked already, I'll accept it. They'll still be idiots before and after the flight, and I'll still use my free drink coupon to temper my disdain for them. Fair trade-off. As a "ffflyer", I'm kinda surprised you're not A-list already.
