US Airways Question

Thu Jul 07, 2005 1:24 am

I'm trying to get the E-Exit rows for my flights 0071 and 0519, both on 16 Aug. I can't change my seat reservations online (booked with a free voucher). Can I call in and request these seats, like I did with CO, or do I have to wait until the day I fly and hope to be lucky. (P.S. I'm a strapping young 19 y/o, so I can def. fulfill the reqs). Any US CSRs have any advice for me?

Yes we like strapping young people in the exit rows..LOL.

Well you probably won't be able to have them assigned ahead of time. Sometimes the day before they will do it, but normally the seats aren't released that early or are held for elite passengers. Doesn't hurt to try of course. =)

When you do the online check-in 24 hours before the flight you can select the exit row seat then...as long as you do it exactly 24 hours before then you should not have a problem getting the exit row seat...wait till 23 hours before and you might have missed your chance.

Enjoy your flight.

Just give US a call and you should be able to request the seats you want. Just hope that the seat you want isnt already taken  Wink
Im not a US CSR or anything, just a US customer, and it happened to me once.

I'm not actually doing the SNN-PHL segment. I chose the extra PHL-CLT because I was told that was the only flight that was open. I was bumped (voluntarily) from a flight last year and got a free round-trip ticket. Also, if anyone could tell me the chances of getting bumped for either of these flights, I'd appreciate it. (It was loads of fun last time)!

In theory, the real answer is that US only assigns exit rows in advance to its elites.

In practice, as with most everything else, get a nice agent on the phone, and you'll probably get what you want.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
