On international flights, your seat is allocated on booking, according to your preferences and status. I think only high status passengers can change their seat.
Yes, flew QF
for first time last month and was not able to reserve/request seat on QANTAS.com. I called reservations in US and got sent to Tucson who would not reserve a seat for me. I was told seat assignments are done at check in.

The ring-tone was weird. So I was connected to a agent in Australia. She reserved seats on both flights
Yep, I called after hours and rang Australia and they did it for me.
Great aircraft. Just a comfortable ride. I did it in Y on QF
011, and it was great. Much better than the old 744 I had on QF
I can tell you that the crew is nothing special though. I was told the ''special'' A380 crew would be different, but they were nothing to write home about.
Actually, I try to do that as much as possible when flying on a non US carrier. Often, if you wait till after midnight (local US time) you can get connected to the respective home country. I've done it to reserve special meals on IB
in Britain even waived by phone booking fee one year. Plus you get to hear the native accent which really gets me in the travel mood.
