    One can select seats (you may use the Manage Your Booking or Gestiones de Reserva option on the website, or call Iberia,) up to three months in advance (and 330 days on intercontinental bookings) if you are:
    • an Iberia Plus customer (and companions) travelling on the same booking
    • oneworld Emerald and Sapphire customers
    • Full-fare or flexible-fare customers who meet the following ceriteria:
    Flights Fare Classes

    To / from the USA - all fare classes

    Intercontinental - J D I Y B H K M L V T S W

    European - Y B H K M L T X

    Domestic (Spain) - Y B H K L T X

    To access your booking online, be sure to have your Iberia six character PNR; your AA, BA etc. PNR will not work.

    Your best aids for seat selection are www.seatexpert.com and www.seatguru.com

    I read that there are issues with Iberia's seat selection. I booked tickets some time ago for from an AA codeshare through Orbitz (through the AA deal months ago). The seats show up differently on all websites, some showing not together or nonexistent and we are having difficulty changing seats online. Is this a common problem? If we aren't seated together, will Iberia help us out at the gate?

    Just called Iberia to request seat assignments for flight. Was allocated seats (as OW Emerald), but was advised that there is a €50 charge on inter-continental flights for the exit row. Have not yet seen the assignments appear in the booking so will wait and see if they actually stick.

    So, the seat allocation was never done and/or they never stuck. But if you are elligble for advance seat selection and cannot do so on the IB website, you can access the reservation via the Finnair site and select seats there.

    A new policy indicates that one world ruby, sapphire and emerald customers (equivilent to IB silver and above) can select exit rows seats for free.
