Can I purchase Choice Seats Extra Legroom on emergency exit rows?
"If you’re planning on purchasing Choice Seats Extra Legroom on emergency exit rows, please note that you must meet certain safety requirements as passengers seated on these exit rows are responsible for quickly and efficiently opening the exit hatch in cases of urgent crisis.

• Fit and able-bodied capable and willing to assist our cabin crew in case of an emergency
• Able to comprehend printed and verbal instructions in English

If you meet the requirements above, you may purchase seats in the exit rows. Unqualified passengers will be provided a comparable seat, otherwise you may apply for a refund. 


Can I change my seat after payment?
You can change your Extra Legroom or Forward Seat assignment in the same flight through PAL Ticket Offices or Reservations Hotline. You can also request for a change in seat at the airport check-in counter. If you’d like to transfer to a seat type of higher or lower value, payment for the new seat will be collected on top of the prior payment. Once your seat has been changed, the previous payment for Choice Seat is forfeited.


Are Choice Seats guaranteed?
 Purchasing a seat in advance assures you of your preferred seating. However, circumstances due to safety, security, and operational concerns may require us to re-assign seats, regretfully sometimes even after boarding the aircraft. Should this occur, we will make sure to provide an alternative seat of the same value or refund your Choice Seats payment if otherwise. 


REFUNDS


Can I refund my paid Choice Seats?
Choice Seats are non-refundable. However, if your flight has been changed or cancelled, and we’re unable to offer a comparable seat, you are entitled to a refund. You may apply for a refund through our PAL Ticket Offices or Reservations Hotline.


If I rebook my ticket, can I use my paid seat on my new flight?
You can use your paid Extra Legroom or Forward seat on your new flight if you only change your flight or date. You’ll be subjected to remaining seats available for re-selection. However, if the same seat category or value is not available on the new flight, your paid Choice Seat will be forfeited.


I will be upgrading to Business Class / Premium Economy. Can I refund my Choice Seats payment?

Previous Choice Seats will be forfeited if you upgrade to Business Class or Premium Economy.


My seat has been changed. Can I refund the Choice Seats I paid?

Certain unavoidable circumstances such as aircraft change or other instances due to safety, security, and operational concerns may require us to change your seat. If your paid seat has been changed, and we are unable to provide you a comparable seat, you may apply for a refund through our PAL Ticket Offices or Reservations Hotline.

OTHER CONCERNS


I would like to reserve an aisle seat, but I do not want to pay the corresponding fee.
All our aisle seats may only be secured in advance for a fee. You may request to be seated in any remaining aisle seat free of charge upon check-in online or at the airport.


We are travelling as a group. Will we be seated together?
To ensure your group is seated together, you may purchase any of our Choice Seats in advance. Otherwise, you may reserve any remaining seat available free of charge upon online or airport check-in.


Why were other passengers seated in Choice Seats without having to pay the corresponding fees when they checked-in at the airport?
Our check-in agents have full discretion to reserve or transfer passengers to any seat to comply with operational, safety, and security concerns.


Why should I pay for an aisle seat when other passengers can get it for free upon check-in?
