You have to wait until OLCI...

That is INDEED unfortunate for all concerned. I'd be happy to part with 20euros for an Exit Row in advance and i'm sure AF would be happy to have the $. OLCI opens at t+24? Thx!

T-30h
AF uses some obscure algorithm pre-assign seats at the start of OLCI as a function of status and fare.
You can try to change them and more seats can be available nearer to departure time.
Sometimes you have the option of buying exit rows ahead of time.
That's only when they are sure which c will operate.

I decided I didn't want to deal with the ZRH-CDG-Change Terminals-NCE, get in late then drive to my destination nonsense and just booked a new ZRH-NCE J ticket with LX. Much simpler. Issue is now moot, thx!
Leadership and glennhaak like this.

There is no seat selection, for no one. That's unexplainable but that's how it is.
Was your ZRH fight planned to land in 2G ?

During the summer months all ZRH flights are operated by E90 planes, so I assume they use 2G for that
