Selecting VA Seats @ 90 Days

Hi everyone

We've just hit the 90 day mark before our flights and I have selected our seats for the outbound journey but the seat map is still unavailable for the inbound journey

Is that right?

Do we have to wait until it's 90 days until our return flight to select those seats

No problem.
It just happened to me, so as of a couple of months ago that was the case.

My partner and I want to try and get the two seaters on the plane. We were going to wait up until 12am, 90 days before. Has anyone else done this? We have never flown with VA before.

We are flying economy on the VA afternoon flight. Which seats will disembark first? We need 4. I've never really managed to work this out. I think I'd like two rows of two rather than a row of four.... Actually Id like first class but that aside

Yep I have
We always try and get the twos at the back of the plane, the positives of just the two of us sitting together outweighs the negatives of being one of the last people off the plane (think loooong wait in immigration)
The next flight we are on to Vancouver, all of the seats at either side of the cabin are in twos so we are close to the front of the aircraft is time
Seat Maps aren't always updated right at the stroke of midnight so keep checking back if they aren't showing when you first log on
Good luck!

If your at the back of the plane, your last off. We used to get the 2 at the back when it was just the 2 of us, but now we are a family of four and will try to get a row of 4 as close to the front as possible, with a 2year old I want to try and avoid a long wait, unless we get to upgrade to premium!

Can you check in before your flight time? Last time we did online check in at something like 180 days out it had to be after your flight had departed, eg flying at 10:00 you could only check in after 10:00. Has this changed now its 90 days? This would be a lot better as we are on a 1:45 flight next time and i know I will forget but if I can do it in the morning, great.
Thanks

From what I am aware you can request seats 90 days before departure (that's 90 days before outbound and 90 days before inbound). You can do this up until 24 hours before. From 24 hours before your departure you can do online check in where you have the opportunity to amend these seat selections and other additions to your flight. Hope this has helped.

It's worth noting if you DO pre allocate your seats you NEED to do online check in at least 2 hours before your flight.

Yup, so long as you have your e-ticket or Virgin booking ref, you'll be able to book your seats. You'll see the Manage my Booking on the right handside of the VS home page
