No Seat Available?

Changed departure to a day earlier over the phone today, now flying BA67 LHR-PHL on Monday 8th. Iím WTP but cannot select a seat, everything blocked, does it mean sold out?

GCH so thought Iíd be able to book my seat?

Flight load is looking like this currently: F8 A7 J8 C1 D0 R0 I0 W1 E0 T0 Y4 B3 H0 K0 M0 L0 V0 S0 N0 Q0 O0 G0. So a op-up seeing you're a GCH is pretty likely. Here is the seat map for PE as well.

But there are none to choose from at the present time, so you can't. It looks like there are four blocked seats (33A, 33EF and 33K), so at some stage (possibly at T-72h) you may be able to get access to one of these.

Still 4 seats free but I think they are the bassinets so you canít choose then yet.

As a GCH you also have a reasonable chance of an op-up.

In fact, this is looking like op-up city.

F has seven empty seats. Looks like business has two, possibly only once they've upgraded - with Y2 W1 and so many unsold seats up front I would expect half the WTP cabin to be moving forward.

Thanks all, fingers crossed for the op-up. However if it looks too good to be true it usually is.

Used to fly this route regularly around this time of year. Flight tends to run out full with returning college students.

Found it a good city for WTP-CW op-ups, even as a Blue/Bronze.

Fingers crossed for you!

Blessed are they who expect nothing, for they shall be truly delighted if an op-up materialises.

Been allocated 33A which isnít great as I prefer the legroom in a non bulkhead.

OLCI done but didnít download boarding pass but I donít have the option to view/change seats. Is the cabin totally full and everyone checked in?

33E and 34F are both still looking available. C has plenty of unclaimed space and Y has a few open seats and lots of blocked (byFLY) seats.
