I am in desperate need of an explanation.
I recently subscribed to Expert Flyer and was checking the seat map for a flight I am booked on this Sunday – QF 97 BNE to HKG. I am flying with my partner and two children and have requested upgrades for all of us, from Y to J, and I have WP status.
Presently, the map for J is showing 4 seats as available and 14 as blocked. Does this mean that, in total, there are 18 available seats? Or does it mean that there are only 4 seats available, with the other 14 reserved for platinum members who have purchased a ticket, but not yet chosen a seat?
So, when purchasing a ticket, does the system automatically allocate a seat, which will then show on E/F, or does nothing show on E/F until the seat has been chosen?
Sorry about all the questions, and thank-you. Any ideas as to the likelihood of an upgrade will be most welcome as well J
