Paid Seating?

Paid Seating?

  1. Moni

    Hey Lucky! I just want to ask you something conserning one of your favorite airlines: Lufthansa. Once I’ve bought my tickets between Europe and the US, can I reserve or change my seats for free as long as I remain in the same cabin? Because even if I “downgrade” to a worse seat they still want to charge me? Is that normal or is there a way around this?

    Assuming you are talking about a paid ticket in Economy Class, seat selection and associated fees depends on the fare class you booked.

    By fare class do you mean which website I booked off of? I used Vayama. What I don’t get is why can I select any economy seat for free on American flights but they charge me on Lufthansa.

    Each airline sets their own rules in terms of seat selection and whether there is a fee associated with seat selection.

    Class of travel is what most people associate flights with – economy, business, first. However, fare class is different in that each travel class is further divided into “buckets” where each bucket of seats is priced differently with slightly different benefits. For example, really cheap economy fares and economy fares that might include extra baggage, changes of dates or upgrade priority.

    When you booked from Vayama, the confirmation you received should have the fare class listed somewhere. You may be able to find it on Lufthansa’s website when you look up your reservation. It’s a single letter code.
