BA Seat Map Blank

BA Seat Map Blank

I have 4 flights booked in the Summer on one booking with BA. I was looking at seat availability on my return flight BA 2166 and the map is blank. All the other flights are fine. I am a bronze card holder so can book for free 7 days in advance. We are flying club World.

My questions are why is the seat map blank on that flight and do you think paying to book seats will be necessary on this busy Summer flight?

We are 4 adults.

It could just be a system glitch, or it could be they arent sure which aircraft will be on that route yet.

If you cant see the map, nor can anyone else though so I wouldnt worry too much. Give it a week or so and look again.

When I looked up your flight number it is showing a 777 to do that flight

This is the seat plan for your flight number on a random date in July, so not actually sure why its not coming up when you look. Maybe give BA a call.

Reserved 2 seats for Lanzerote on row 25 which appears on-line to be last row in FRONT of wing. Paid £20 for pre flight reservations. Not a frequent flyer but then looked at a full plan of the A319 on the web and that plane ends at row 22. Yet i have reserved 2 seats on row 25. No help from BA customer service who said "its onlty a guideline". but you will be placed at rear of plane. I advised that the diagram shows all free seats before the wing and therefore had no intention of sitting at rear. Cancelled booking but have no faith in BA pre seat booking any longer. Anyone else suffered from their misleading system.

Not that it matters now that you've cancelled your booking but if you paid for seat selection you can change your seats as much as you want. I've never found their system to be misleading.

The BA seatmaps on Manage My Booking sometimes show up odd depending upon the browser you use. I believe that in Euro Traveller the front half of the cabin is not available for assignment until online check-in because if more Club Europe seats are sold then they just make that cabin bigger.
