I have a itinerary on United and I'm trying to figure out how to change my seats before I leave on the trip. I was just wondering if there was a way to change these 2 weeks before the trip on their website and how do I do it.

Call them up and ask nicely. They have moved me this way in the past...

In order to change your seat, you will need to call United on the phone. Every airline has a different set of rules, United has theirs as well.

By a simple search of at their website, found:

Quote:
After purchase
  • Seat changes must be completed using EasyCheck-in Online, 24 hours prior to departure.

UAL Seats Website

Assume if you want to change before the 24-hour limit you would need to call.

Hope this helps.

It's not that big a deal really, is it? It'll probably be quicker than logging onto to the site anyway. Plus, you know it'll be done correctly as well.

Just wondering, thanks for the answers guys. I'll just check in well in advance to get good seats (exit rows).

Yeah, some seats they will tell you to call back starting within 24 hours, however, no way of doing it online unless they changed it within the last 2 weeks. Easiest way is to call them, ive had very helpful agents.

They are not going to give you the exit seats over the phone. I've tried in the past and they gave me some bull because they want to visually verify that i am physically able looking.

your best bet is to hit up the kiosk in the airport and get them, i am able to get them 9 times out of 10. I know US and NWA dont book the exit rows as a rule until the last minute. Just a suggestion for next time.



If it was said by us, then it must be true.

On my previous and upcoming flights with UA I've just called and asked, never managed to get an exit row though because of obvious reasons.

Go to www.checkmytrip.com and have your seating plan open when on the phone so you can see what is available.

dont know about out of usa airports but out of heathrow we tend to do exits maybe at the gate when the gate agent can see that someone is ok to help in an emergency and isnt a 5ft nothing demanding extra leg room they dont need when a 6ft4 guy will be cramped up etc.

sometimes they are open at check in so the first people who ask tend to get and we tend to bluff and say they are gone if the person is short!

it all depends on who edits the flight ie the person who will be in charge of it the next day as to how they want to play it.
