I am AB Gold and can see that I can get XL seats for free on AB operated flights.
I am now looking at an Asia-Europe connection for which the Asia leg is operated by EY and the Europe leg operated by AB. When booking through AB portal, I can select the XL seat for the Europe leg without any problems. However, I am not able to select any seat for the EY legs.
Now I am wondering:
- Does EY have a similar XL seat concept?
- Will I be able to select the seats on the EY manage booking page for the EY legs after the booking? Considering they are having such a big stake, I would expect their IT infrastructure to me much more aligned.
- Would booking via EY make more sense, knowing that after booking I can log-in to AB and select my XL seats without no issues?
Appreciate any past experiences on this.
