We'll be booking in the next few days. I have 2 seat related questions... We will be flying out with friends, but willo be booking separately from them, but all want to sit together in a 4 across the middle of the plane. Can we choose our seats on purchase, or is that just at the time of online check in? And - we are booking over the phone as we're booking miles+money fares. Is it worth me stating over the phone that I want to be seated upstairs on our return flight?
