Hi,
I'm an experienced traveler, but mostly US. I'm flying Emirates for the first time next week to Bangkok via Dubai from Dulles. My husband has some health conditions and it's better for us to sit together, especially over such a long flight. Is there any way to avoid the Emirates seat charges for selecting seats early? (I joined the Emirates Skyward program, but as a new-to-Emirates traveler, it doesn't help.) The Medical form from Emirates implies a much greater severity of illness than he has--not to mention that time is tight over the New Year to get it completed by a doctor and back to them. Suggestions? Advice? I tried throwing myself on the mercy of the person on the phone, but to no avail.
Thanks!
