Singapore Airlines seat selection on Virgin codeshare

By S | May 30, 2017, 11:55 AM
Hi guys,

I've got an SQ flight SYD-SIN next week which I've booked as a VA codeshare.

I rang SQ to allocate seats and was told that I am unable to do so until 48 hours before. Also online it seems I'm unable to pick my seat.

This seems crazy! 

Has anyone else had a similar experience? Is there another way I should be going about this? Any help would be appreciated :)

Hi - I have been advised if you ring Virgin Reservations, ask them for the SQ PNR Number.  You can use this number on the SQ Website to do your seat allocation

How is it crazy? If you want seat selection ability choose the SQ coded flight like I do, it's pretty much how every codeshare works!

I have had this issue a number of times flying SQ booked through VA. On my last flight neither VA nor SQ were able to help me with seat selection, even with the SQ PNR number. I just had to make do with the seats that Virgin automatically assigned on booking. It is a bit unfortunate. 
I love flying SQ but the seat selection issue + the very average Krisflyer Gold lounge at Changi are real turn offs.

I have also had problems with trying to make a seat selection and particularly wanted to get an SQ P seat,  when on an LH codeshare booking.  I now tend to avoid all code shares, but recall some time ago being able to choose seats on an AA flight when on a QF ticket.  So are there some codeshares that allow seat selection and how do you know before you have a booking and try?

Thanks all for the suggestions. Looks like I'm at the mercy of the seating gods :(

I fly Perth- Sing about once every 2 months. I too hate this process. I am platinum with virgin/velocity but I too am unable to select my seat at the pointy end . Also only 48 hrs before departure can i select a seat down the back !!!! crazy . I love SIA but will fly another partner airline if available due to this :-(

If you book through an agent, they can request the seats for you
