I was flying with a group of friends on Emirates and I decided to check in online the exact moment the online check-in is enabled on the website.
To my surprise I found about 10 seats only available to choose from with the rest of the seats marked as already booked. This was an Airbus A380-800 plane with an insane number of seats on board
The weird thing is my friends were shown different seats when they tried to check in, but they were also shown a limited number of seats.
- Do airlines show different seats to different passengers?
- Do airlines limit the number of seats shown to passengers during check-in?
