Flying standby with Emirates reward
My wife and I booked first class on Emirates from the Seychelles to San Francisco with Alaska Miles. We wanted to stay in Dubai for a few days but when I entered this (and also phoned Alaska) they put me back in business for the DXB – SFO leg (the MLE – DXB is in business, not sure if it is a 2 class 777). However when I booked it direct MLE – SFO we got 1st class for DXB – SFO with a twenty hour layover in Dubai. Wanting the shower experience that is what we booked. Now the question. What is the chance of showing up in Male 1 or 2 days early and getting on in business without affecting the rest of our itinerary? This itinerary also includes SFO – SEA and then SEA to Nashville all in 1st.
