Economy passengers flying internationally with Qantas are now able to select where they want to sit when they purchase their tickets online, this comes as an additional $20 cost.
Sophia Connelly, a spokesperson for Qantas has said:
We've had [seat selection] for a while and widened it to include all our customers.
The new feature was made available on March 30. Although, the seat selection does not apply to domestic flights; first, business and premium economy passengers; or passengers who are platinum, gold or silver flyers. Advanced seat selection allows Qantas (but not QantasLink) customers with greater ability to enjoy their flight experience, with the added option of selecting where they want to be seated, said Connelly.
