Logistics of Extra Legroom Seats on A359 of Hong Kong Airlines

There are 10+ rows of Economy Comfort (Extra Legroom) on A350 on Hong Kong Airlines, and you can supposedly reserve those seats for a nominal amount. By rule, when you check in at the airport counter, if you want to be seated in Economy Comfort, you still need to pay. What actually happens when supply far exceeds demand and no one wants to pay to be seated there ? Would they not assign these seats away for free ?

Yes, they would. But it is going to be luck of the draw. If you want guaranteed space in the economy comfort section you should pay in advance.

The economy "comfort" seats should open up at 24 Hours (48 hrs non- U.S.) OLCI. Those are just seats with 2 inches extra legroom and cost about $35 USD to reserve in advance. However, they probably still fall under "airport control" and if you specifically ask for them, they may charge the $35. The extra legroom seats cost about $100 USD and would be default assigned last, if at all. Note, all of those have a fold out entertainment screen that can only be used at cruise.
