CW Seat Indicative Prices?

I've tried searching but the information I've found seems to be out of date.

Having not flown BA for a couple of years, I've dropped from Gold to Silver and now Bronze. I'm planning an Avios trip to Orlando in November/December. There's reasonable availability but I can't see how much it will cost to select seats now (rather than waiting until T-7 days). I thought I'd see an option to select and price seats now before I got to the payment screen, but I don't. I know I can select seats via MMB but it's too late then if there are no suitable seats on the flights I choose.

Does anyone know what the typical costs are for selecting a CW seat these days? Thanks.

Not sure how comparable it is, but for YYZ-LHR later this month on a Club Suites fitted A351 I am shown:
  • 96 for the middle seats in rows 1+2 (windows are all taken so not sure how much they would be)
  • rows 3+4 completely occupied
  • 96 for window seats rows 5-8, 88 middle
  • 82 window, 73 middle for rows 8 and on

The last time I paid for a CW seat was to UVF about 10 months ago and it was circa 100 maybe a bit more each way per seat. I would have thought Florida would be similar at a guess.

If you do a normal dummy (revenue) booking for your dates it should show the pricing which is dynamic. In the sense that the better location the more expensive, the back middle ones are much cheaper.

On LGW to MCO, if paid at the time of booking, it's 85 to 110 - using a random date in November 2024. You can check this by doing a dummy revenue booking.

Thanks DSF. Where are you going to to see that information?

Edit, I get it now. Only visible via a revenue booking.

Actually I was looking at an existing Avios booking, as a Bronze.

I've been Bronze now for just two days. Can't say that I like it very much down here.. Could be worse, and will be next year
