Problems reserving airline seats.....Help!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I, along with another couple, are going to France next June for a river cruise. Everything is taken care of except our airline seats which I would like to finalize so that I can relax. Since we would all like to sit together and are in economy (Ugh!), I wanted to select our preferred seats ASAP. I've gone to the KLM website (flight over) and to Air France (return flight) and, upon selecting our seats, they did not hold. I tried again after awhile and the same thing happened. I just spoke to a rep. at KLM, who even checked with his supervisor, and I was told I should just keep trying back as they could not bring them up either, stating that perhaps it was too soon. I inquired as to why so many other seats scattered about the cabin were already reserved, and I no particular answer was given. I totally understand that there might be plane changes before our date of departure, but I have always been able to select seats; even a year out.

Has anyone ever had this problem before? Any tips on what I might do other than just try back every day? I don't want to get STUCK in some random, leftover seats. Please help!
