What are ChoiceSeats?
ChoiceSeatsTM are mostly window and aisle seats towards the front of Coach (and may include exit row seats*). ChoiceSeats have the same leg room as other seats, but are closer to the front of the plane – so you’re among the first to get on when you board (with Zone 2) and among the first to leave when you land. *Dividend Miles Chairman’s, Platinum, Gold and Silver preferred customers will continue to receive exit row seats free of charge.
When can I buy ChoiceSeats?
When you book your flight, during check-in and any time in between.
How do I buy ChoiceSeats?
Are ChoiceSeats sold per flight or each way? In other words, what would I pay if I have a connecting flight?
ChoiceSeats are sold on a per flight basis. For example, if you’re flying from Los Angeles to Philadelphia with a connection in Charlotte, you may buy a ChoiceSeat for the first flight to Charlotte and another ChoiceSeat for the second flight to Philadelphia.
