Changing your seat and refunds

Log on to My Trip to:

  • Change your extra comfortable seat to a seat of the same type on the same flight – free of charge
  • Change your extra comfortable seat to another type on the same flight (for example, changing a seat with extra legroom to a seat in the Economy Comfort zone) – at an additional charge.


If you have reserved an extra comfortable seat and you change your flight times or dates, you need to reserve an extra comfortable seat again on the new flight. You may then apply for a refund of the costs of the extra comfortable seat on the original flight.

Refund
We will do our very best to make sure you will get the seat you have chosen. In some cases we may need to give you another seat, for example in case of an aircraft change. If this happens, we are very sorry and apologize for the inconvenience. You may be entitled to a refund, which you can easily apply for online.
