Airport Controlled Seats INTERNATIONAL

Jump to last reply

Here is my dilemma. I am flying for my first time international. I leave on July 17 and taking Asiana airlines from Chicago to the Philippines via Korea. Here is where I am worrying. Here is my itinerary.

Chicago to Korea.... Got seat
Korea to Manila..... Got seat
Manila to Korea..... Got seat
Korea to Seattle..... NO SEAT
Seattle to Chicago on Alaska airlines..... Got seat.

Here is my concern. I got the last seat available from Chicago to Korea. But not a window seat I want. The airline said that there are some seats that are blocked for airport control and when I check in I may be able to find one. What does this mean? Also what if the flight is overbooked? It is crucial I arrive in the Philippines on the day I am supposed to because I have a tight schedule I have planned. But I am worried about the fact that I will be on the flight. The Korea to Manila had many seats open. Its just the flight out of Chicago I am concerned about. I already got a reserved pre selected seat but the policies of overbooking or airport controlled seats is where I am lost. What does this even mean for me? Do I seriously have to sit and worry the next 3 weeks about this when I need to be planning my time in the Philippines? Its almost scary to plan what I need to plan if I am worried about what the airline means by this.

Thanks for any help to help me calm my nerves a little. Im already nervous of flying alone for my first international flight and this dont help my worries. Thank you.
