Hi all,

Quick question... booked on QF7 on the A380 to DFW in Y... Had originally selected 32K, and checked expertflyer this evening to discover it vacant? Went to MMB and found "not selected" under my seat assignment. Have tried to select a new seat (plenty open) however it refuses to confirm the selection and just says "not selected" every time? Anybody experienced this before? Is it because I'm trying to select too close to departure? Vaguely thought it was an op-up, but with loads of: F3 A3 J2 C2 D0 I0 W0 R0 T0 Y9 B9 H9 K9 M9 L9 V9 S9 N9 Q9 G0 X9 E0 that seems very, very unlikely!

Thanks!

I've had my seat disappear on expertflyer both times I received an op-up from Y to J (Mel-Akl; Cns-Bne). But only on the day itself/in the lounge. My guess then is op-up....

Every time it happened to me it was an op-up, never lost my seat without being able to select another in the same cabin.
If you are curious just call QF and ask them.

Has happened to me a few times on domestic flights where the seat I was trying to select was actually allocated to me but would not show as allocated.

Must be a glitch when there have been subtle changes to the booking such as aircraft change.

Op-up it is... Was considering a poibts upgrade to J but it has been showing J2 W0 for about a week with Y wide open (Y9... Q9 and even X9!). Upgrading QFFs for the first A380 service? y wouldn't have been too bad if I had snagged a row...

Congrats!
It's so good to get an op-up for such a long flight, enjoy!
Hope you get another one on the way back :)
