Hey AFF’ers - is it normal for seat selection on Y+ to be completely unavailable 4 weeks out from departure?

I’m SG and just getting the window/aisle preference option with no option to pick anything. I’ve checked expertflyer and the whole Y+ cabin is either taken and the other half of the cabin is blocked however seat availability shows plenty of Y+ seats available as does QF website. 2 other PAX on the flight I’m travelling with are also SG and getting the same on their seat selection.

I think something strange is going on at the moment with QF IT. Have had the same issue for a domestic flight tomorrow. I’ve been unable to select any seat for the last few days and nothing at check-in.

QF seat selection will revert to the Aisle/Window preference if a set percentage of the cabin has been pre-selected.

It can also happen if, for example, the seats available to select at that status level are either allocated or blocked. For example WP and P1/CL can get access to pre-allocate far more of most cabins prior to T-80ish. It could well be that there's no options to change to (currently) even if there are open seats viewable/selectable by higher status levels.

(or it's a bug)

As a silver i was able to pick my Y+ seat, when i booked a classic reward 10 months out (only first row was blocked out). I think it reverts to aisle/window once a certain % of the cabin is pre-allocated.
