FI and I are going to a conference in May, through work. Because we work for different departments, our flights need to be booked separately. If we both book the same flight today, is there any way that we can link our reservations together so we can try to keep seats together? Lately when I’ve flown, even when I choose my seat the airline moves me around at least twice between booking and check-in date. We’re flying United if that makes a difference.
I do it all the time. Just call the airline
I’m not sure if you can link them together in any way, but you can call and request you are seated together. A co-worker and I booked separately last year and initially were sitting together, but the airline wanted to bump me to a different flight. I was able to get them to bump her as well, and book our seats together on most of the flghts. But, it’s something that could get messed up if the airline changes seats. Though I had that happen when DH and I did actually book together, for instance they changed all our honeymoon flights and we were no longer supposed to be sitting together. I was able to call and get it fixed though.
I believe that in order for your reservation to be seen as a group – you need to have the same record locator number, not necessarly booked on the same ticket. The easist way to do this is to call them.
Awesome, thanks everyone!
