    I have an Alaska miles-booked Cathay Pacific flight Shanghai to LAX, with a stopover in Hong Kong. Couldn't get business class, so I'm in "premium economy," which should be ok for my return trip. Premium economy was not available for the first (Shanghai-HK) leg of the trip, so I'm booked into regular economy for that one, but the Alaska ticketing agent said that I should call later to see if the PE seats become available on the flight (if so, they can reassign my reservation to that class without charge since I've already paid for PE). My question is: when and how frequently should I call them to check on changed seat availability? The flight is four months away.

    BA's website will show CX PE space - you could check there and call AS when you see space.
