Last minute seat change on app?

i thought I remembered that I could change seats on the app nearly until boarding time?

I wanted to do that on todays flight but it seems gone now or hidden. Did I miss the thread about this? Is it new behavior?

No. sometimes, gate agent locks up the seat map. You have to ask the GA to change your seat.

This is correct, once either the gate/ops/other takes control of the flight it locks seat changes from the check-in portion. Generally this occurs T45 for domestic or T90 for international or when the gate agent arrives at the counter to work the flights. However I have seen flights go gate control in excess of T2 hours.

Best,
