Booking with Emirates
We’ll do our best to provide the seats you reserve. However, we may have to move you to a different seat in case of disruption, aircraft change, or for any other operational, safety or security reasons. Seat reservations are subject to change up until flight departure. Therefore refund requests can only be submitted after your flight departs.
In case of involuntary changes to your seat due to operational, safety or security reasons, you are eligible for a refund only in the following cases:
Refunds will include the total amount paid for seat selection minus taxes (where not refundable). For flights already taken, the refund will be compared to your last selected seat before involuntary changes.
Customers are not eligible for seat selection refunds if:
Seat selection refunds for compassionate reasons follow ticket rules on compassionate refunds.
