I have booked a flight return to Sydney via Dubai from London with Emirates. I am registered with Emirates frequent flyer/loyalty scheme. My flight however has Qantas flight numbers. Normally when I book with Emirates I can manage my booking and choose my seat.
I tried this and because the carrier is Qantas and not an Emirates plane, I was directed to Qantas seat option site. To be able to choose a seat, Qantas charge a minimum of AUSD25.00 per leg.
Can anyone tell me if I am exempt from this charge for a free service offered by Emirates or I have to stump up the cash to allocate seats?
