KLM Seat Selection

I will be booking a November trip BOS-NBO, DAR-BOS shortly with Delta/KLM. I put my November dates in the Delta website to see how much extra the the Economy Comfort seats would be and I noticed that I could not select seats for the KLM operated segments. I went on the KLM website and did the same thing, but I did not see seat selection as an option at all until online check-in. I could only indicate a preference of aisle or window. Is this how KLM works, or is it because I am trying to book 9 months out? Or, will I be able to use my Delta confirmation number to pick the KLM seats after booking?

Thank you.

You will need to have a confirmed booking and the locator number to be able to select your seats.

In January when I booked Delta SEA-AMS-IST for a May 1st departure I could not select seats on the KLM flight AMS-IST until 90 days before departure. Now able to do so.

KLM offers a great customer service via Twitter! @KLM is their account.

Now Economy Comfort works slightly differently compared to the other Eco+ classes. One has to first buy a regular economy ticket. Then only buying an upgrade becomes possible. The price will depend on the passengers FlyingBlue tier (Platinum members get it for free, Gold at a discount, ...)
