If I paid for a business class under my name and an economy seat for my wife, would I be able to switch boarding passes and let her sit upfront instead of me, I do not mind sitting at the back (found out she is pregnant). Would this be a problem? Also, my ticket is claimable under work, hers is not.

Hi mspcooper,

I've seen this happen on Cathay. It didn't appear to be a problem.

I should not think cabin crew would make too much of a fuss. 

Whoever said chivalry is dead!

Seen it done at the door on many occasions on many airlines and it never seems to be a problem.  Also gets you massive respect from the inflight attendents so they often bring the premium drink and food from the pointy end for you when you are slumming it down the back. A polite explanation of her condition, cheery smile and plenty of manners should see you win through.

This won't be a problem at all... just let the crew know what you're wanting to do before you get settled in.

They may even let you come up into Business class just before landing so that you can disembark the aircraft together.

Depending on the airline and the design of their business class, the crew may even allow you to come up and dine with your wife. Congratulations on the news :)
