A weird possibly deliberate issue yesterday. Booking for partner who is WP and in their account when making a booking so seat selection for Qantas domestic flight should be wide open. Thought I’d do an advance seat selection and the closest to the front I was offered was the Exit Row - 12 and of course the extra $25 fee. I could not even scroll to see rows 4-12 to see any other availability. Given the only fare offered was an expensive Flex I didn’t select the exit seat. I’d been charged enough. Finalised the booking then when back into MMB and tried seat selection again. And now rows 4-11 were visible and some more forward aisle seats available. Was Qantas doing a sneaky and trying to get me to pay for the exit row?
