When I booked our trip I was under the impression we could select our seats around 6 months out. I have tried to do this and have been told by Virgin that I can pre-select my seat at a cost of 25 pound per person per journey. They also told me that this doesn't guarantee the seat and can be subject to change. When did this change? Is there another way around it or will I have to wait until 24 hours out to check in on line? Our last trip we had booked extra leg room seats however these were not suitable for us as the width of these seats were reduced by around 4 inches which we had trouble with (but that's another story). I have downloaded some kind of seat guide and that is telling me I can book on 25th June however doesn't state a cost. I'd be interested to know how it works with Virgin now.
