    It has been a long time since I have flown on BA, had a couple of sectors booked for 2020 and booked one the other day al these were F rewards. Today I added a couple of J sectors to another booking and then proceeded to find some seating. First thing I noticed was the 1-2-1 layout 'sweet', I...

    A330 to Perth economy front row fixed armrest?

    Hi all Just a quick question: flying Sydney to Perth soon, with a bub (15 months) for the first time, so there's a fair of anxiety! We are on the A330 and I'm trying to figure out the best place for us to sit with an infant. I have reserved the middle front row economy seats (23E, 23F) for me...

    Use OW status for seat selection but credit to QF?

    I have signed up for the QF status challenge and I also have QR Platinum status, is there a way I can use the free seat selection with my QR status but credit the flight to QF for the status challenge? I added the QF FF number on the booking and not surprisingly the system doesn't recognise that...

    Seat selection bug on partially flown itineraries

    Seems like the QF seat selection tool has a new problem - it's no longer possible to complete seat selection changes on a partially flown itinerary. This is particularly painful for T-80 changes. Screenshot below shows seat selection for a booking containing four flights - two already flown and...

    Seat selection at check-in

    When online check-in opens, can I select a particular seat for free or are fees still payable if I want to change what the system has allocated to me?

    Strange seat selection

    I'm flying on QF9 PER-LHR next week in Y as a WP. At the time off booking (several months ago) I selected 41D. I'm an aisle kinda guy. I figure a centre aisle is my best option as if there is someone in the middle seat there is a good chance they'll be travelling with someone in the other aisle...

    Seat Selection tactic?

    A weird possibly deliberate issue yesterday. Booking for partner who is WP and in their account when making a booking so seat selection for Qantas domestic flight should be wide open. Thought I’d do an advance seat selection and the closest to the front I was offered was the Exit Row - 12 and...

    Qantas seat selection not working?

    I'm currently having an issue where I can't seem to select a seat on any of my bookings. In the app it puts a coloured box around the seat when I tap (and same in Google Chrome) but doesn't select it. In IE and Firefox, nothing happens. It just won't select a seat, but doesn't give an error...

    Virgin Platinum seat selection on Etihad

    Does anyone know if Virgin WPs get complimentary seat selection when flying the cheapest Etihad fare? I understand Etihad Guest status holders do, but Etihad’s website doesn’t say if status holders of partner airlines do or not. I know Singapore Airlines doesn’t give Virgin WPs complimentary...
