How far in advance can you select your seats on Qantas? I'm booked on flights in October. Thanks

I know in the US airlines often do out max 90 days.

Domestically, you can't...

Internationally, I select mine at the time of booking. I've had seats selected in excess off 300 days out. So call them and select...
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

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.

Thanks for the heads up. I called Qantas last night. I guess their Tucson res center was closed for the day. The ring-tone was weird. So I was connected to a agent in Australia. She reserved seats on both flights. I wanted the 2 seat rows in the back of the 744. They were all taking already. I can't wait to fly on the A380 on the return leg!

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.

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 026 LAX-AKL.

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, VS 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.

Don't know about international, but if you are flying on a domestic route you can check in online 24 hours before the flight.

just booked LAX-SYD-SFO last night and was assigned window seats as requested, but not able to change more than that.

Got lucky with decent seats, so probably won't bother to make the call.
Good tip to call Australia to change though, might have to do that if seatguru shows anything negative about the ones I was assigned or if I get switched.

Doing LAX-SYD on the A380, so can't imagine a bad seat there Big grin
They're not handing trophies out today
