I like a seat on the aisle when flying. I get up frequently on a flight and it is very inconvenient for my row mates to have to stand up every 45 minutes or so just to accomodate me. So, I checked United’s website to see if I could select a seat. (You can just click on the links below and go directly there.) I found that I could not choose a seat due to the ticketing agency we used. I will contact EF to see if we can get our United Mileage Plus numbers added to our itineraries.
If you haven’t already got a Mileage Plus account I recommend you get one.
(BTW, is EF aware of any special meal requirements you have? Let me know as soon as possible so I can make sure those are included on your itinerary.)
Here is what United Airlines has to say on the subject of seating:
To select seats after you?ve purchased tickets,
*log in to My Itineraries using your Mileage Plus number
*select View/modify for the itinerary you wish to change.
*Click Seat assignment to change your existing seat assignment.
* Click the seat you prefer,
*then click Next flight or Close seat map. Your new seat assignment will be saved.
You may also select your seats on United or United Express throughEasyCheck-in Online.
EasyCheck-in Online is available within 24 hours of your outbound flight.
If you forgot to select your seat when purchasing tickets through another website or travel agency
* please contact your booking source directly to have them add your Mileage Plus number to your reservation;
*you will then be able to use My itineraries to view your seat assignments or make changes if seats are available.
