Psst - If you're booking Economy Light you can also pay to choose your preferred seat for £30 in My booking up to 24 hours before you fly.
If your booking was made before 17 March 2018, you'll still have to pay to assign your seat.
For some extra space you can upgrade your standard seat to an exit row seat from only £49 one way. You can book exit row and upper deck seats by logging in to My booking. You can also book at the airport, just ask for availability when you check in. Prices may vary in the airport and bear in mind that seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
What you need to know about exit row seats:
If you're travelling on one of our 747 aircraft you can choose to sit on the upper deck for an extra charge. Often refered to as 'the bubble', it has a more intimate atmosphere than the main economy cabin.
For tickets booked from 17 March 2018:
Red members: You'll get free standard seat assignment for Economy Delight as part of your ticket. For Economy Light, the standard seating charges will apply.
Silver members: Will be entitled to any time free standard seat assignment in Economy Light for Silver Flying Club members only. If you’re travelling in a group, any non Silver or Gold members will need to pay the standard fees for Economy Light seat assignment.
Gold members: Will be entitled to any time free standard seat assignment in Economy Light for their whole booking party. Gold members will also be entitled to free exit row seat assignment when they are travelling on an Economy Classic ticket for the member only subject to availability.
You'll be able to choose your seats for your flights in My booking.
For tickets booked before 17 March 2018, the Flying Club seating benefits that were available when you booked your ticket will still apply. You can find more information on those here.
