If the customer states they just want extra leg room etc., please advise them "the remaining seats for this flight are under airport control and can be confirmed upon check-in on the day of departure
Note: We accommodate the seating requirements of customers with certain types of disabilities. This could result in the occasional need to change another individual's pre-assigned seat, with bulkhead seats being particularly subject to reassignment. We appreciate your cooperation in these special circumstances.
