I recently booked award tickets DFW – ORD on AA, ORD – LHR on BA, LHR-AUH-MLE on Etihad 1st (incl apartment), MLE-HKG on CX, HKG-HND on JL biz and HND-SFO on JL biz. I booked all through AA and right now only have seat assignments on our DFW to ORD flight on AA metal. How should I go about getting seat assignments on our othe legs? My wife and I hope to sit together especially on the Etihad first apartment leg and other long hauls.
@ Andrew — Call American and get the record locators for all the other airlines. Then go to those airlines’ websites or call them directly, and they can assign seats. When you call American, they should be able to assign seats for some (though not all) partners.
