Choose a Seat on BA - How to Avoid Fee?
« on: August 15, 2013, 10:33:43 PM »
What's up with BA?

I want to select seats (BA metal) and they want to charge me per passenger, per segment.
So for the round trip (2 pax), wich contains 4 segments its a total of $320!

I. Am. Not. Going. To. Pay. It.

Any way around?
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Cash
Interesting
I just purchased 6 tickets with Avios and I did not have this problem.
Curious what happens in the end

does it have partner segments as well?
Did you book online or via a TA?

The first segment is operated by American Airlines.
Booked by a travel agent.
