    Warning: Jetstar seat selection fees

    I recently flew with Jetstar from Cairns to Osaka on the 787. On both the outbound and return flights we paid for "up-front" seats in row 10, which cost an extra $25 each. These are bulkhead seats in the first row of economy. Our CNS-KIX flight was cancelled less than 24 hours before departure...

    WP Advance Seat Selection

    I rang the premium hotline to find out why all the first two rows in economy on my domestic QF flights were blocked out and unable to be pre-selected. As a WP I have pre-booked rows 4 and 5 as recently as December. The consultant informed me that these rows are now blocked off for Chairmans Club...

    QF Legroom Seat Selection Charge Glitch?

    Saw this one on another forum: Supposedly there's a bug in QF's system that lets non-status flyers choose legroom seats for $30 rather than the usual exorbitant fee? I don't have a booking coming up so interested to hear if it works for others. Supposedly in the confirmation email for your...

    Thai Airways Seat Selection

    Next year my wife and I are traveling to Bangkok in F on Thai Airways. My question is which seats would be the better choice travelling as a couple? At the moment they have put us in 1A and 2A. Would we be better off leaving it at that or sitting across from each other in 1A and 1K? We have...

    Seat Allocation Etiquette

    So boarding a flight today and I found a pax sitting in my seat exit row 13F. I politely said, excuse me I think that is my seat. Turns out they are allocated 12F so honest mistake at this point (I'm assuming). However at that point she said it doesn't matter I'm staying here you take 12F. I...

    I've just booked one of the directors on SQ SYD-SIN-PVG and back (in Y). They are VA WP. You'll have to excuse my ignorance as my SQ experience is non-existant.

    Gold Status seat selection

    I am currently gold status. I have been making a couple of domestic bookings of late and the only seats that are being offered up to me for selection are seats towards the back of the plane. It use to be from about row 7. I am not flying the cheapest fare either. Have I missed something?

    EK to introduce Y advanced seat selection fee from 03 October?

    In a similar move to VA, EK appear to be introducing an advanced seat selection fee for Y passengers on lower Y class fares and with no status. If implemented, I assume the QF codeshares may also possibly be affected in the future. Seat selection at check in will still be free. Charges are up...
