Picking a seat on Virgin

Jump to last reply

Have a flight from the other side of the pond to US on Virgin for which we don't have seats. We have a party of four - mom, dad, hobbit 1, hobbit 2. Both halflings are less than 12, which is Virgin's cut off for treating them as adults. This means Virgin must, by its own rules, seat them adjacent to mom and dad.

Adjacent means: next to, directly across the aisle from, or directly in front/behind.

We can pre-purchase seats, but that's a bit of a waste for all four of us. My question is, if we pick seats for the (by age, not attitude) adults, could we limit Virgin's options sufficiently? For example - the plane is a 2-4-2 layout, if momma and I get windows in consecutive rows, is virgin near certain to put the halflings next to us?

Insights on Virgin's dealings with families appreciated.
