BA choosing seats

BA choosing seats

  1. Mick

    Just realized you can’t choose seats on BA business?!?? Even when paid. Seems bizzare

    Is it worth paying to choose a seat? It’s an overnight from Chicago to London. I’d prefer the window seclusion

  2. Rob in Miami

    Nothing to add, but WHY!? how is it that one can pay $4000 or so to fly on BA and can NOT select a seat? I really would like for somone to explain this. Also, [USER=2190]@Mick[/USER]… if do select a seat, I have had BA simply delete those seats without any notice. We are both Emerald on OneWorld and it means absolutely nothing. I have vowed never to fly on BA again. Wish I could magically help you, though.

    BTW- I hope you are not transferring at LHR. It’s the worst I have seen.

    Thanks for replies. My choices are pay $95 for that cocoon window seat or just fly earlier on American. I’m flying American back so wanted to try ba for the first time

    The AA77W is far superior in soft and hard product.

    Maybe I got lucky, but this is what British says when I log in to select my seats.

    This is paid business class for a flight 4 months away…

    MIA LHR must be more competitive?

    Some people have status and do not have to pay for seats in Biz Class. But without status, its a ridiculous fee. When the AARP discount was $400 it might make sense, but now that it is only $200, the entire discount gets eaten up by paying to choose your seat. Unless its a huge difference in fare, I won’t fly BA. Its a lot worse than Delta One in my opinion, so why pay more for less? I have a couple flights this summer booked with American and with Cathay where one segment is with BA. I have assigned seats on all segments except for the BA segment, since they want money to assign seats in Biz Class.

    We are Emerald (AA EXP) and they gave us seats at check-in (upon payment)… then 3 months later, only 4 months before departure- they deleted our seat requests. 3 phone calls, 3 emails, and all we had were reps with non-British accents telling us that BA has the right to remove or changes seats at its leisure. This BA airline for me?- NO MAS.

    Sorry to be so annoyed with such a HUGE company/ conglomerate .. I will stop these rants on British Airways. over and out

    Agree that arbitrarily changing seats is very unfair.
