On a similar pattern:

As previously mentioned in an earlier thread, my wife & I are flying to London in July. We have been pre-assigned seats 40 G,H,K & 47 K.

Question 1) Why have 4 seats been assigned? Is it 2 on the way and 2 for the way back? Which is which? Also none of these seats are beside each other except G & H (aisle separated) and we would like to be seated together.

Question 2) As advised, I checked out seatguru and it mentions that there is an entertainment unit under seats C,D,G & H. Do I then assume that this unit is not under A,B,E,F,J & K? If yes, is it advisible/suggested to call now and try to change to these seats or wait until check in on the day?

Question 3) On 2 previous similar trips we were lucky enough to get emergency exit seats. I intend to be at check in early and hope to get them again if I’m fortunate. At check in should I request specific exit row seats ie B,C or H,J (seat guru advice) or will I look like a wanker to the check in staff and be sent down the back of the plane for my sins? Also if answer to question 2 is to call and request other seats, should I mention specific rows & seat numbers?

All help/suggestion greatly appreciated.

You're best bet is to call ahead and request seats. The aircraft seating will be finalised prior to you arriving at the airport so if you want your first preference of seat you should call ahead at least a few days in advance.
Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.
