Why I read these horror stories on the boards against various airlines on the run up to a trip I really don't know, obviously got a problems. Have flown with VA the last couple of times and although in February we pre-booked our seats 11 months in advance, they did move us to another part of the plane when we got our boarding passes. No real issue for us althoughwe don't love being next to the toilets but we were all together which is all that really matters. Going with BA this time, last minute decision, and obviously can't pre-book seats until online check in. With two adults and two kids I'm assuming we should all get seated together - is this always the case. Thanks.
