Air China seat allocation

I have a business class flight from LHR-PEK-MNL.
The aircraft on the flights are A359 and B738 and the front row blocked off.

I would like to ask fro those in the know when the front row seats become available to allocate. Is It for online check In or would it be airport allocation only.

If that's the case, when I check in at Heathrow will front row seats on the PEK-MNL sector be selectable or in PEK airport only?
many thanks in advance for any help and assistance.

Only at the airport check-in.

If you are star alliance Gold or Air China elite members, you can call Air China hotline to reserve the seats. Sometimes it is successful and sometimes it is not.

At the airport is not always the best bet. Air China elite members get assigned front rows quite often before airport opens check-in.

Thanks for the replies.

Any idea whether that means on a LHR-PEK-MNL the PEK-MNL sector will only be possible if available in front row to allocate the front row in PEK or is that possible during check in at LHR?

Unfortunately I don't have any status with star, only one world.

Thanks in advance.
