Booking with Emirates
Depending on your fare type and aircraft configuration, you only pay for seat selection for any sectors within your booking where you will be travelling in Economy Class.
For example, if your outbound flight is booked on a Saver or Special fare and your inbound flight is booked on a Flex fare, you’ll only pay for seat selection on the outbound flight and will be able to choose a regular seat for free on your inbound flight before online check-in opens. If you wish to choose a Preferred, Twin or an Extra Legroom seat either on your outbound flight or your inbound flight, charges will apply whether you’re travelling on a Special or Saver fare or Flex fare. When traveling on a Flex plus fare either on outbound or inbound, you can choose from a Regular or a Preferred seat (except on A380 Upper Deck) free of charge. Please note you may be entitled to complimentary seat selection on additional seat types depending on your Skywards tier.
