O class fares - seat selection prior to checking in

Hi all
​​​​​​I'm looking at booking a flight with Virgin Atlantic to JFK. Fares are much cheaper through an OTA such as Expedia.

The cheapest fare includes a checked bag, which according to Virgins website, is only available with Economy Classic and higher fares. These fares also include a free standard seat selection as soon as you book.

Does this also apply to these cheaper OTA bookings? Thanks.

And O class should be fine for a checked bag and seat selection as this falls under Economy Classic rather than Economy Light.

I suppose the only thing I would suggest is to make certain that the booking doesn't say Economy Light/Basic, etc before you buy :-)

My Virgin Holidays booking to Vegas is shoeing an O fare. Booked seats instantly (paid extra for front Bubble econ seats)

Thanks very much! They were indeed O fares, Economy Classic. Only cost 250 return from Cork to NYC return!
