Unavailable Seat Map

We have two flights from Edinburgh to Hanoi (45 min transit at Doha) which some of you know is stressing me out. Now, the second flight's seat map is showing as unavailable. We leave on Thursday. Why does this happen? I like to double check everything and now can't see our seats

Appears to happen with some regularity two days before the flight.

For some reason when the cabin is full, the seat map is unavailable, try to check on seat expert

I have just checked on ExpertFlyer and I can see the blocked seats etc for that flight which is good. I changed our seats from Row 17 (Due to finding out that there is a blocked window) to Row 29 and I can see that there is a blocked seat next to us. We have flown many times with QR but this has never happened before and I do like to double check everything before checking in online!

Smiley2 there are two main reasons for seat maps vanishing from the website.
1 There is a change of aircraft type and the reassignment of seats has not been completed.
2 OLCI has opened. (48 hours before departure).
There are many other much less common reasons such as seat reassignment due to a VIP or a large group.
If you want to check use OLCI.

It must be a change of aircraft then as I can't quite check in online yet. This is the second flight for us and the first is still available to see.
