Inquiry Submission By Flowermom

Hello, we’re on flight K6 840, a 1hr 15 min nonstop in Feb. The airline offers reserved preferred seats for a fee through Optiontown. Otherwise, I believe they’re assigned for free the day of travel at the check-in counter. Since I don’t do well with motion sickness and want to be seated near my husband toward the front of the plane, we’d like to reserve seats.

When we go to Optiontown online, the seating chart is the craziest thing I’ve seen. It’s as though they couldn’t fit all the seat options in a row, so came up with this confusing diagram (where for example one row might have seats labeled 5E, 5F, 6A, 6B, 6C and 6D. Then the next row would be 6E, 6F, 7A, 7B, 7C and 7D, and so forth.) The chart shows the aisle going down through the plane on a diagonal multiple times. We are guessing there are 6 seats in a row with a 3+3 configuration, but there is no info on what type of plane it is, and we can’t be certain of anything based on this seating chart.

The other confusing thing is that our flight is next month, but no one else has reserved any seats yet according to the chart. I did email CAA, but language issues appeared to have prevented them from actually answering my questions.

So my questions are: Do most passengers not reserve their seats in advance? And does anyone have experience with reserving their seats in advance with CAA who could share their suggestions?

I’d appreciate any feedback, thanks!
