Hi everyone,

I am starting to plan and check availability to some flights from Syd to LA for Qantas FF. When I do the search, a heap of flights show up, but when I select any of them, and try and add it to my intinery, a message shows up saying:

The selected flight could not be added to your itinerary because:
1 The requested seats are no longer available. Please make another selection.

Is this right? I thought if there was no seats, then the flight doesn't show up for selection. Every dat I select shows this message. I am looking nearly a full 12 moths ahead!

Anyone else having the problem, or does it really mean there is no seats?

Checking Sept 1st, no problem for J class QF43, QF24 (SYD-AKL-LAX) or QF11 in WHY:

"1 seat is reserved, and will be confirmed at the completion of this booking, for the following flights:"

Thanks Serfty

I tried again after your post, and it did work for me as well.

There must have been a "gremlin" in the system :D

thanks

I was getting a bit worried that the flights had closed up and all my plans were going up in smoke...

Thanks again
