Seat Request Help

To request a seat, choose a passenger from the 'Flight Information' panel on the left hand side. Seats must be requested for all passengers and flights in the itinerary.

Flight Information

Select an available seat using the seat map. You can change location in the aircraft using the arrow buttons above and below the seat map, or by clicking on the plane image.

You can request your seat on a Qantas flight at any time after making your booking up until 24 hours before departure.

Within 24 hours of departure, go straight to 'Check-in' as this will allow you to select your seats and check-in. You can select your seat at no charge within 24 hours of departure via online check-in or the Check-in Kiosks at the airport.

Available directly after booking, seat selection is complimentary if you are travelling internationally in First, Business or Premium Economy cabins or on an Economy Saver or Flex fare, or are a Platinum, Gold or Silver Frequent Flyer or equivalent oneworld Frequent Flyer, or are travelling on any Qantas operated domestic service (except QantasLink). All passengers travelling with you in the same booking also enjoy complimentary Seat Selection.

Seat Selection is available for a charge for customers travelling in International Economy on Sale fares. Bronze Frequent Flyers also have the option of redeeming Qantas Points to request a seat.^
