Hi everyone, My wife and I recently booked economy seats from JFK-HKG in October using British Airways award miles. During the booking, we were told that the BA phone agent is not able to select our seats on the flight. She stated it is because it's Cathay's policy to not allow seat selection in Economy until 48 hours prior to departure during online check-in. Is this true? If so, this is the first I experienced this with an airline (this is my first Cathay flight). It concerns us that there is a chance we won't be able to sit next to each other on a 15 hour flight. Do you have any recommendations on how to best ensure that we can get seats together? We will of course try to check-in as soon as we can 48 hours prior. If that doesn't work we would do our best with asking the flight agents at luggage and boarding for any openings. Any other tips? Thank you.
