I found my two bleacher-type seat cushion. I stood on both of them on the floor, and apart from sliding around (which means I'll fall off my chair), they are only an inch thick and squished down. So, no use.
What do you think the chances are that they would let me in with a small step ladder? I have a little 2-step thing that I use to reach higher cabinets in my kitchen. There's no way they'll let me in with it. They'll say it's blocking the row and is a fire hazard. I'm not even going to bother.
The good thing, though, is I was just checking the seating chart. I'm in seat 1. Don't know if there's an aisle between sections 1 and 2. But, if there is, they I can maybe stand off to the side in the aisle a bit. Not sure it will help.
