    Ticket on multiple airlines: seat selection?

    For a forthcoming MEL-ATH return I found the best combination of flights/timings on the LH website. I was able to book PE seats on the LH segments (HKG-MUC and MUC-SIN), but that leaves me with no seat allocation for MEL-HKG on CX or SIN-MEL on SQ, both booked in PE. [No PE on the LH MUC-ATH...

    Free seat selection privilege after linking bookings for WP

    It always used to work... As a WP, if I linked my booking to a passenger travelling on the same flight, I could then request seat allocation of that passenger to be next to me. Anywhere in the WP free seat allocation area, regardless of the other passenger's status. At no charge. Now it's...

    International WP Seat Selection Enhanced ™

    I was checking on some flights I have coming up and noticed a change to available seating on flights as per the subject. Until recently as a WP, I have been able to select front row bulkheads on 330's. Now it seems Qantas are completely blocking off the front two rows - presumably for P1/CL...

    Seat selection on Thai flights

    Hi, I booked using UA points on TG going MEL-BKK-DPS-BKK-MEL in J (why go direct right?). MEL-BKK are 777s, flight was good. For BKK-DPS, both of which are 747s when choosing my seat, I noticed that I was able to grab 1A on the inbound and 1E on the outbound, both of which are F cabins. Now...
