agreed. I wasted hours of my vacation time trying to battle them so they would fulfil their obligation and make my seat resevable.

In the end they did find an error on my reservation page and corrected it. after that I was able to check in 3 days in advance.

I would recommend calling them, JAL, and CX, get RL for all flights and then try to see what can be done. Don't take their word for granted (especially AA), make sure information is same from all airlines. At first, they lied to me that I could not reserve a seat because ticket was purchased through 3rd party.
