Why is there no seat choice available on the A319?

Looking to book an upcoming flight with a connection from ZRH to VIE, I have the option of a 1h10m or 3 hour connection.
The shorted connection is an A319 and the longer one is an A321. if I pick the A319 there are no seat options at all (only window or aisle preference...),and no seat map available, while the A321 has plenty (including many extra legroom seats).

Why is that, and is there anyway of choosing a seat / paying for a seat, or only when online check in opens?

The A319 is a codeshare flight operated by Austrian Airlines and while LH Group all use Amadeus, you canít reserve seats on swiss.com on LH or OS operated flights (or vice versa).
At Check-In it works and with calling in it should too.
Iím not sure but you should be able to add your PNR on either LH webpage (to select seats on LH operated flights) or on OS (to select seats on OS operated flights. However Iím not sure if this is possible anymore.

Thanks guys.

I missed the fact that the flight was operated by OS. makes sense now.
