I have just discovered that on-line check in is a bit of a joke. I went to check in immediately the "Desk" was open, (i.e. 24 hours before flight), wishing to select our seats. Out of 156 economy seats to choose from, there were only about 10 other seats we could change to, from those which we had already been allocated. I fail to believe that that many people had already beaten me. Any comments? Thanks, Alf.
