    When selecting a seat for QF73 (flight 1), EF is showing rows 1-4 blocked, with the rest available (unless taken), however Qantas site has rows 5 and 6 blocked.

    Copa Airlines' over-engineered seat selection charges

    I'm flying with Copa Airlines today and wanted to select a seat. As I have a basic economy ticket there is a charge to select any seat. Now that in alone isn't surprising, but I was surprised to find that there is a different price for every single seat on the plane! I've seen many airlines...

    This option came up when booking a Turkish Airlines flight: If only other airlines made it this simple to book a comfort seat! It usually requires a phone call, and then you have to hope you reach someone who knows what they're doing... If Qantas (and others) made it this simple to book an...

    Hi AFF brains trust, Has anyone selected 1A/1K on A330 (international flight) at T80 and have had your seat reallocated else where when checking in / boarding? Am I rolling the dice by selecting this seat, because of the bassinet or other reasons to get removed from it?

    I mostly fly the same route for work, and depending on the aircraft i take advantage of the 80 hour rule a fair bit as i am tall AF and i don't want to be squished into a normal seat for a few hours.
