Trying to help out a business associate who has a ticket that he purchased from AA for QF codeshare flights LAX-SYD and SYD-DFW. He hasn't been able to get seating assignments for his flights from either AA or QF. I thought he would have to get them from QF, so I figured maybe he just got an agent that didn't know what they were talking about. I tried calling QF and got the same reply. The QF agent told me that I needed to call AA for the seat assignment, which doesn't sound right to me either. He's booked in Q. I did some searching through the forum and couldn't find any clear indication of whether he's entitled to a seat assignment or not.
