At the Airport

Check-in for customers seated in Exit Row seats is only available at airport check-in counters.

Qantas has the sole discretion at check-in or boarding, to determine whether a passenger meets the requirements to sit in an Exit Row seat. If the passenger does not meet the requirements, they will be assigned a different seat.

Seat selection cannot be guaranteed as seats may need to be changed for operational, safety or security reasons, even after boarding the aircraft.
