I have a flight from Koh Samui to Phuket in August and I am not being given a seat confirmation. It was a hard flight to get, two seats were cancelled and so they were able to book the two we needed. I have another flight from Bangkok to Koh Samui also on Bangkok Airways a week before and the seat assignment appears. On the many flights being taken, it is the only one where there is no seat assignment. I asked if it was an issue of paying for it, she said no. I am not getting a good explanation and she is telling me not to worry about it.
But this does have me worried, because whenever I see an unwillingness by an airline to commit to a seat assignment (when I ask and am willing to pay for it) I think that it is oversold and I am going to be one of those people at the gate waiting in suspense to see if they can get on. I have been through this before. Any advice?
