British Airways Seat Requests Stopped?

Hello, I was checking my booking, Even though i will cancel the return leg as i will now remain in the UK, I was looking at the shortcuts on BA's Manage My Booking, And usually it says Request A Seat, Now it just says seating, It doesn't let you select a seat, And it doesn't give the usual message of regrettably we have reached our limit of pre-allocation, I was puzzled and wondered what changed? Could anybody tell me?

Looks like you can't pick your longhaul seat even when you've been ticketed, which is bonkers IMHO.

I have lost ALOT of interest in British Airways, They suck, I usually fly LHR-DTW often with them, But now i will defiantly fly with Northwest Airlines.
That is my opinion, British Airways cancelled my DTW-LHR flight last month, I did get transferred to NWA, But the way the handled things was beyond the joke.

The site says for the following pax:
Gold & Silver EC pax
F pax
Flexible J/C/W/Y
Pax with infants

Quote:
The above customers can choose their seat at the time of booking and change at any time until they have checked in.

This is the ones you WANT to be able to pick. Who cares if you can't select a seat on a one hour flight, but if I'm gonna be stuck inside a metal tube for hours I want a good seat

Hi


Our BA rep said that this is due to T5. What they are trying to do is to get the majority of pax to check-in on line. As when they move to T5 BA will have less check in desks than they have now. I guess they think by not letting most of their passengers select their seats until check-in it will encourage pax to check in on line.

I think this is a bad move and they will go back on this. Lots of leisure passenger now pay to travel club world. I know that as soon as we start telling clients that they cannot pick their seat before check-in they will want to change to another carrier. If you were travelling with someone else would you pay for a club class seat on BA if there was no guarantee that you could not sit together?

Surely one of the reasons for this is to speed up check in, as seats will be preallocated to both the customers who really matter to BA (executive club gold & silver etc) and to those who need to be seated together (familys with children etc)

This should result in not upsetting the customers who pay the most, and less need to reallocate seats due to family groups checking in at the last minute.

With regard to the comment over upsetting people in club world who can't then sit together, surely the club world layout makes sitting intimately close a near impossibility. I personally would much prefer to sit adjacent to my family, but realise that theres a good probability in club world that we might be separated by an aisle.

My wife and I once travelled to Hong Kong stuck in the middle of a block of 4 seats with an unaccompanied passenger in the aisle seat each side, because they had managed to secure pre allocated seats. From this experience I can see the problems that can arise from lots of pre allocation.

Finally the existing system had a pre allocation limit which in my experience was often reached, so it wasn't that wonderful really.

And remember you can check-in on-line from 24hrs before departure (I think thats 23hrs ex USA) so you can secure a seat then.

Here's the thing - when online check-in opens up 24 hours before departure, you now have the entire seat map of available seats at your disposal. This includes bulkheads and exits, unless they've been blocked for customers with infants (bulkheads) and Executive Club card holders (exits/bulkheads). So, as a customer, you actually have more choice of your assigned seat if you check-in online, as opposed to checking-in at the airport.

It's simple really - check-in online, get your choice of seat. Leave it to the airport, get what's left.

Important thing to remember is this - once the boarding pass is issued, there will be no facility to change the seat at the departure gate.

The whole new seating policy is designed to create a 'clean gate' environment for Terminal 5, where flights will be boarded via Intelligent Gate Readers (IGR) only, and no seats will be re-issued or changed.

But sometimes the passenger levels went back below the pre-allocation limit and you could choose your seat. This happened to me recently.

Long haul seat choice is very important to me, I'm now less likely to fly BA long haul now.

No I think you have misinterpreted it, they are making choose your seat the main perk of online check in; for any non frequent flier without children you will need to do online check in to get a good seat.

Well, in case you didn't realise, selective or discretionary upgrades aren't actually done by the gate staff, but remotely, via the Flight Management Unit. The gate staff just print the boarding passes.

These days, BA is allocating an asburdly small percentage of seats for pre-selection if you are booked in any discounted fare category. For those traveling in Club World or World Traveler Plus, it seems to be no more than 3-4 seats per cabin.

While I understand the need to differentiate the product by providing more perks for the highest yielding passengers, it does tend to alienate an overall larger number of customers.



It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

BA are fast heading down the route of not caring about pax in the cheapest seats who are not regular fliers - they want to please thei higher yielding pax and those who fly with them often. It makes business sense, even if you do alienate a large group of people.

Depending on the market, but BA tends to have large tour groups and those will also be preallocated in advance. In the end most passengers will have more freedom to select their own seats as long as it's within the 24 hour period before the flight.
