Virgin flights booking seats

Hi. How far in advance can we pre book our August Manchester to MCO seats. Despite five recent flights with them I never seem to know when I can do this and we end up with rubbish seats!

I know you probably know this (how to suck eggs comes to mind) but you cannot per book your seats with Virgin, you can only pre request and in many cases they can change depending on the interior of the specific aircraft that flies on your travel day

It's 90 days until our flight today so I just logged into manage my booking and it let me go in to pick me seats, but every time I try pick an available one and submit it, it says seat unavailable Virgin have said the seats won't be released until tomorrow but surely it wouldn't give me the option to choose one if they aren't released yet?

Same thing happened to me - just try again tomorrow and it should be fine.
