In reading through some of the threads here about upgrades, I get the impression that some Dis-ers get a little peeved that someone would ask for an upgrade -- whether the person is willing to pay for it or not. Does it bother you that people might ask for an upgrade at check-in? Does it bother you if they receive one? As for me, I have no problem with a person asking. It will be available or not (and most likely it's the not part of that) and the person may or may not be asked to pay for it. If asked to pay, it may or may not be at a reduced rate. I figure if someone gets upgraded in any of these circumstances, good for them! That's a little bit of magic during their trip. I don't think people generally ask for upgrades *expecting* to get one, it's just a nice perk if it happens. And for those who say "I worked so hard to pay for mine...why should someone else get it for free?" I would say that you booked and paid for it because it was important to you and you didn't want to chance not getting it. Those with upgrades know that they most likely are going to be where they booked, with a slim chance of getting something more, and they're ok with that. So....what does anyone else think?
