Blocked seats for Economy

I'm sitting here trying to book a flight from MCI to PHX for Feb 18. When I tried to book economy, it shows all the seats are blocked, however, when I selected Classic or Classic Plus, the seats displayed as available. What's the story with that? BTW, this will be my first time ever booking with F9.

Thanks in advance.

If you choose Economy your seat will be selected at check in. For Classic and Classic Plus you can select your seat at booking.

Thanks Mike. Yep, I'd rather have the ability to select my own seat, so I'll just pay the extra $30 and go with Classic.

Classic includes DirectTV and 2 checked bags as well, so if you were checking bags anyway you are getting a deal.

Plus a nice little mileage bonus (25% I believe).

Classic Plus will get you a STRETCH seat if you need the additional legroom.
