Tips for families: How would an adult best ensure he or she is seated next to a family member under the age of 14 when flying your airline?
Arrive at the gate at least 60 minutes prior to departure and talk to the gate agent. Alaska Airlines blocks a limited number of seats until the day of departure, at which point those seats become available to accommodate family seating and other needs on a first-come-first-available basis. If all such seats have been assigned, Alaska Airlines’ agents will make efforts to seat family members as closely to each other as possible.
Seating Model: Does your airline provide seat assignments or does it use an open seating model?
Advance Seat Selection: Does your airline enable consumers to reserve seats at booking?
Fee: Does your airline charge an additional fee for these advance seat reservations?
Airline: What disclosures relevant to family seating does your airline provide to consumers during the booking process?
Travel Agent: If your airline allows others to sell tickets on its behalf, do the family seating disclosures provided by these entities differ from the disclosures provided when booking directly with the airline?
