I'm just noticing a trend (at least to me...could be normal...) that when you try to book a flight online and can pick seats on some of the itinerary and not others, it might mean something. It has seemed to me that these flights are possibly overbooked and there are no seats to pick.
Is this normal or just a glitch of some kind? If I call on some, they will give me something. On the two occasions I did, they couldn't give me one on the phone, but no problem getting one at the check-in counter.
On another occasion, I couldn't change a Business class seat online (since there were no others available), but calling Res they gave me another a row behind.
