going from LAX to IST in sept (returning OCT) I've gotten seat assignments (within 90 or 100 days, can't remember which)--the seats we wanted, by calling the airline, since there is no place on their website to select seats (maybe if you purchase within the 90 days, but we bought months ago)
i like to check my flight (well, the seats, really) info about once a week, so there are no surprises. but without being able to see the seat assignment online...i feel a bit foolish calling them every week asking, are my seats okay? (like i own them and they're just "seat-sitting") lol. seems like a waste of their time and mine.
do i have any alternatives i just haven't thought of?
(sorry if this sounds petty. well i guess it IS) ;-)
