    Selecting an upper-deck A380 Economy seat for 2020

    Hi all, Suppose someone already selected seats in a QF A380's upper-deck economy section for an early 2020 flight, unaware that a number of A380s would have been refurbished by then and the seats in question may not exist. Would Qantas automatically reassign that person to a different seat...

    Seat Selection on QantasLink De Havilland DHC-8 400 Flight

    I'm booked on QF2566 (CBR-BNE) on 18 August. I am not able to view the seat map or make a seat selection via the Qantas website or app, and when I look at Expertflyer it says a seat map isn't available for this flight. When I booked the seats (via phone to Qantas) they said seat selection...

    Tech issues - seats no longer blocked for gold/platinum?

    I noticed today when checking a seat map that all seats (apart from Economy X) now seem to be available for selection even when not logged in to my Velocity account. I'm guessing this is probably a temporary tech blip, but I guess VA could have just abandoned blocking the forward seats for...

    I do FIFO work so I fly a lot with Qantas and I'm currently silver frequent flyer.

    Pax kicked off Air NZ flight for ignoring safety briefing

    I haven't seen this discussed here elsewhere yet. A couple has apparently been kicked off an Air New Zealand flight from Wellington to Auckland after refusing to listen to the safety briefing. They were seated in the exit row. Good on the cabin crew, I say...

    Answered Seat selection not available on codeshare

    I recently flew CHC to SYD in Y on a QF/EK flight booked with Qantas. I am QF SG. Seat selection was not available until check-in, when there were only 3 seats left. Is this because it was an Emirates plane or because it was a short sector? Or is there another reason? I'm planning to fly...

    Answered Jestar seat selection with family of 5

    Flying jetstar on a 10 hour international flight. 2 adults and 3 children between 5-10. If we don't select seating before the flight, what are the chances that jetstar will seat everyone apart?

    Answered QF11/12 - "Individual seat selection isn't available for this flight."

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get the contact centre to assign a seat for you on these flights, as you can't seem to do it online anymore. I was able to do it online when I flew this same route a few years ago, so it seems they've made another "enhancement" since then. And bonus...

    Hi, I'm going to book a Y ticket with Emirates to London and I read that as a QF platinum that I get to select certain seats for free. However, when I go to book the ticket on Emirates I don't have the option of free seats. So is this an actual benefit? Does the benefit only become apparent...

    Hi, I've got 4 flight sectors coming up on Air north on the top end. Does anyone know when seat selection opens up or only at the airport.. Would a QFF Gold have any preference over seating - eg to get row one ?

    Why QF and LATAM have seat selection issues on their codeshares

    Hi all, not sure in which forum to post this - it is about the QF/Latam codeshares trans-pacific, and the seat selection issues they have. This is more a curiosity thread - I will explain..... Qantas and Latam both fly SYD to SCL and vice versa. The Latam 787 flights do a stopover at AKL...
