    I'm wondering if anyone has ever got Row 4 pre-assigned or offered as an option on a 737 when doing an OLCI?

    I've never had it assigned or available on my booking yet, so I'm wondering...

    I wish I could avoid them like the plague too. That's all they operate for some routes, unless you go Jetstar*, unfortunately! I doubt my spouse would be too delighted if I started travelling between places on a business jet.



    *which I really do not mind and I would rather fly on an A320 anytime over 737, but unfortunately their schedule does not fit in with mine!

    I had row 4 on a 737 pre-assigned with OLCI on a flight from Brisbane to Cairns last week.

    As a QF WP checking in shortly after T-24h I have a strike rate of 3/3 for 4C/D on 73H's. :cool:

    Ah, thanks guys. I guess I need to fly more to move one row forward then (I almost invariably get 5C or 5D). :D Here's hoping...

    I have had row 4 assigned, but row 5 is much more common. However, most of my 737 flying is ex-Canberra and I get told that they reserve row 4 for last minute CL members. Certainly row 4 is often empty when I am in 5.

    If you fly Virgin Blue you can allocate yourself a seat in row 2. :mrgreen:

    Sorry... ;)

    Better half and myself got Row 5 on our flight back from PER yesterday. Row 4 was full, but 1..3 were utterly empty. As a result we got the J staff serving us in the front and since it was New Year's day, a freebie wine to boot!

    Certainly one of my better domestic flights in cattle class.

    Indeed. Is it just my imagination or is 2D narrower than every other seat on the plane?

    Oh, and what's special about Virgin Blue Row 2? I haven't flown on Virgin for ages.

    Just a quick mention that in two cases I was already allocated one of those seats so did not have to move.:p

    Free wine was the order of the day on New Years Eve as well (well at least to PER)

    It's now 4/4 on 73H's and, yep, I was already allocated 4C! :cool:

    (Couldn't realistically move anyway; the seat map was showing all seats down to row 10 as allocated/blocked.)

    Ab-so-lutely nothing...

    And funnily enough neither have I (well about 4 months). I fly pretty much on BFOD - is it my imagination or have DJ inched up their prices in comparison to QF and JQ?? because I'm getting a whole heap more QF flights! :p

    I finally had 4C pre-allocated :D

    I think it's been the WPs that have been hogging them! :mrgreen: (And for the amount of flying they do, that's fair enough)

    I was on a 73H this morning from SYD-MEL and when I tried OLCI I was given 4D. I changed it at the airport for 14A
