I will be flying from Los Angeles to Venice next Oct. to embark on a cruise. I will be flying home 2 weeks later out of Rome. Right now Delta looks like the best deal. Does anyone have any other airline suggestions or good sites to check?
Also I'm looking for information on reserving specific seats on airlines. I am trying to get airline reservations as early as possible for 3 different trips my wife & I will be taking next year. No matter how early (330 days out is max. for most airlines) I am checking on line I have found all the best coach seats marked as reserved. I have not run into this situation in the past.
I have called and emailed airlines asking about this. Their answer is a certain number of seats are controlled by the airport and not available till the day of the flight. I can see holding a couple seats but not the 30-40 as indicated on the airline website.
Can anyone shed more light on this? Is there any way to get access to reserve these seats far in advance?
Thanks for any information you can give me.
