Can I pre-book my seats?

British Airways
The simple answer is yes; however whether this is a free or payable service depends on a variety of things such as class of travel, if you are an Executive Club/Flying Club member or travelling with children etc… As your flights are also part of a package holiday, in some circumstances, we may need to issue your airline tickets before seats can be allocated.

We will provide detailed information when you book, but we would also direct you the airline’s website for the latest information:

Virgin Atlantic
Yes, we will automatically pre-allocate your seats at time of booking, regardless of which cabin you are travelling in.  You can, of course, view the seat maps later and make any changes that you wish.
