Another seat selection question...

Sorry if this has been posted before.

I want to book a Japan - Europe itinerary on economy using the LH website but then flying NH metal between Tokyo and Vienna.

I know LH charges a fare when selecting seat, but I am NH Platinum and I want to know if I can select seat for free on NH metal and if I can try to upgrade to PY when check in opens 24 hours before the flight.

Thank you

I was able to select a seat for free (although there were only few options, don't know why). Still would like to know if I will be able to upgrade to PY 24 hours before the flight.

I had a case where it was NH stock and 1 inter EU LH flight. During purchase I could select seats on all legs except that one. If you call LH, they make you pay 10EUR for the seat selection.
However dunno if can upgrade on LH stock. Let us know

I went to the airport and asked there if they could seat me in window/emergency exit for my intra europe flights on Swiss (booked through LH). I got those seats for free, it was great
