LOT Award ticket booked with partner FFP - Seat Selection

Booked a biz award on a LO flight (SIN-WAW) using SQ miles but could only choose a seat preference: window or aisle.

Any way to be able to select a particular seat? Managing the booking via SQ or LO doesn't seem to offer anything new. Is checkmytrip still a viable option?

Iíve booked LO with Aeroplan miles before but SQ miles should be a similar story - LOís website is not so good so take your LO PNR and hit them with a Facebook msg.

LOT Award ticket booked with Lifemiles - Seat Selection

I recently booked a LOT Award in J with Avianca Lifemiles and I'm looking to pick seats for my wife and I. I got the iternary to pull up on the LOT website It looks like you can only pick seats at check-in with LOT, is this true? Can I call in and get seats assigned? Thanks in advance.

I have flights coming up on LOT booked with United miles and when I called in, I was not allowed to select seats or buy an upgrade to the equivalent of Economy Plus. I hope someone replies who knows a way to do it.

I actually found in another thread to send them a facebook message. I did it last night and got the seats assigned. Might work for you in Y.

I had a LO award ticket booked with Miles&Smiles for last summer and I wasn't able to select seats until 36 hours before departure ( OLCI ). However, I've only tried selecting from the web and calling them as it was a LOT flight operated by Nordica which dure less than an hour. As hi55us mentioned, their social media team may be helpful in assigning seats.

Yeah this was an ORD-KRK long haul J so wanted to make sure we got 2 seats together. Fortunately it was pretty easy and now the website displays the seats.

Separate but related question. I used to be able to go into Manage my Booking and see my flights/assigned seats but now I get a page asking for my passport details. So I have tried to fill out this page with every browser I can think of but it either gives an error message or won't save my changes. Has anyone else faced this issue and know how to fix it?

P.S. - I also have an award ticket through United that I was able to email and get my seat assignments. :-)

Can you elaborate on using CheckMyTrip to choose a seat? Does it work there? Thanks!

Use the Contact form on the LOT Polish Airlines website. That is what I did. Not sure if I can post the link here.

Just had this same issue and used the online chat function that popped up on the LOT website in the manage my booking page. Waited for 6 minutes for an agent and they had seats assigned in 5 minutes.
