Exec Club Silver seat selection.

Just made Silver, and managed to select my seats for upcoming flights.

One anomoly, maybe or not, on a flight back from Miami on American Airlines ( BA flight number) I still have to pay for seat selection apart from a few rows of free seats. Is this normal practice on non BA metal flights?

you may have to wait a few days for your upgraded status to sync across to the aa system.

Probably a Sabre - Amadeus issue where AA.com is probably recognizing you as Bronze ( AA allows BA Bronze's to choose non-MCE seats for free ).
MCE seats should be available for you within the next few days.

The secret for me is not being based in the UK.
