Q. Can I pre-purchase specific seats on my flights?

How you pre-purchase flight seats varies depending on whether you are travelling on a chartered or scheduled flight. 

Flight Seat Booker on selected charter flights

If you are booked on one of our chartered flights, you will be able to pre-purchase your seats through Cruise Personaliser. Flight Seat Booker will open approximately 14 weeks prior to departure and close approximately one week prior to departure.

 

If you’re in the Baltic or Ligurian tier of the Peninsular Club, you will receive a two day priority booking window in which to pre-purchase your flights seats prior to them going on general sale. The latest opening dates for our fly-cruise holidays can be found below.

 

To access Flight Seat Booker log on to My P&O Cruises using your cruise booking reference. At the top of the page you’ll find an option called "Flights", from there you need to go to the bottom of the page and select "TO BOOK YOUR SEATS, PLEASE CLICK HERE". You will now need to log into the flight seat booking tool using your cruise booking reference.  If flight seat booker is not available to book when you click on the login button it will tell you.  This will show your flight details and the "Book Seats" button will be displayed. You will then be able to select and purchase your seats.

These are subject to availability and are only available to those guests who are fully mobile and over 16 years of age. You will be asked to confirm that you comply with the relevant terms and conditions prior to booking your seats.

Should you require a questionnaire please call our Customer Contact Centre on 03453 555 111 (local call charges apply), or contact your travel agent. Mobility questionnaires must be returned no later than 14 days prior to departure.

Seating Information below for other airlines

Scheduled flights

Your flight seats can only be reserved via the airline’s website.

For scheduled flights this is only possible once flight tickets have been issued, which usually happens between 6 weeks and 10 days prior to departure. Ticket issue dates vary by airline and route.

Your flight details can be found on your E-Ticket or call our Customer Contact Centre on 03453 555 111 (local call charges apply).

 

British Airways (BA) - All programmes

Pre-purchasing seats depends on the ticket type which can be identified on your E-Ticket. If your flight information includes an “airline locator” (airline booking reference), you will be able to pre-purchase seats from approximately 30 days prior to travel. To pre-book your seats, visit ‘Manage My Booking’ on the British Airways website and follow the instructions. Please note that additional charges may apply.

If your flight details do not include an airline locator, then you will be booked on a British Airways “group seat”, in which case we can reserve your flight seats approximately four days prior to departure. If you have any specific requests, please call our Customer Contact Centre who will be able to assist you, otherwise seats will be allocated when you check-in at the airport.

 

easyJet (EZY) - Summer 2020 Mediterranean fly-cruise

For guests travelling on and allocation or group, you can pre-purchase your seats once you have received your “airline locator” (airline booking reference) – this is available approximately from 14 days prior to departure. You can obtain this by speaking to our Customer Contact Centre.

To book seats, you will need to contact easyJet on 0330 365 5000 (costs may vary), quoting your airline locator, where they will be able to assist you. Please note that there is an additional charge for purchasing seats prior to check-in. You will not be able to pre-purchase your seats online.

 For guests travelling under an individual reservation, you will receive your airline locator immediately, and you are able to check in online when check in opens from 30 days prior to departure.

To establish your booking type (if not already advised at time of booking,) please call our Customer Contact Centre on 03453 555 111 (local call charges apply.)


Jet2 (LS) - Summer 2020 Mediterranean fly-cruise

Most people on a Jet2 flight will be booked on a “group” with Jet2. The airline has made special arrangements to allow you to check-in and to pre-purchase your seats, meals and excess baggage via a dedicated P&O Cruises link on their website.

You will be able to pre-book seats via the Jet2 website from approximately 60 days prior to departure.  Visit Jet2.com/pocruises, quoting your surname and cruise booking reference, and follow the links to pre-book your seats (please note that this is a dedicated P&O Cruises link, and you will be unable to use the standard ‘Manage My Booking’ section of Jet2’s website).

If you book your holiday within 60 days prior to departure, please allow 7 days before attempting to access the Jet2 website.

Some guests will be booked on ad-hoc flight seats, separately from the P&O Cruises group seats, and although you’ll be on the same flight as other P&O Cruises guests, you will need a Jet2 booking reference to log into their Manage My Booking section of their website. The booking reference can be found on your E-Ticket or by calling our Customer Contact Centre who will be happy to assist you.
