Flying SIN-MEL in about 7 hours. Last night I did OLCI and seat selection for Jnr who MUST have aisle. The only option I could see at the time was 41G, so selected it. Having another look a couple of minutes ago, there appears to be better seats available (41G looks to be right in front of the loo - which is obviously crappy).

Is it possible to change seat even though I've OLCI'd? Can it be done online or at the airport?

Yes, just log on again and select another suitable seat. There is an option just to select your seat if you've already checked in.

I'm confused. The online checkin button is available too. If I go to seat select again, it says it's $25. Which button?

I have BP with 41G ?

Tried changing seats and it gave me "can't do", "seat - null null".

The end result - rang QF. They couldn't access the booking to change the seat, as it's under airport control, although QF agent agreed I should still be able to access to change.

The best she could do was to message SIN agents to change seat assignment manually. Fingers crossed :/
