Using AirBerlin Status match
I requested a status match on AirBerlin to my United Premier Platinum. It was approved this morning. I have no OneWorld Status and very, very rarely fly OneWorld; however, we took advantage of the BA Business Class sale last fall. I am hoping to use this new AirBerln gold status to snag FREE advance seat assignments on our LAX-LHR-LAX flights. How is the best way to do this?

Thanks so much! I feel like a fish out of water when switching airline alliances!
