Qantas has announced it is trialling a Preferred Seating product, giving Silver, Bronze and non-Frequent Flyers the option to purchase seats towards the front of the Economy cabin—the core advantages being they’ll be among the first to disembark and to be served a meal.
Gold, Platinum and Platinum One Qantas Frequent Flyers will continue to be able to book these seats with no fee, as per their tier benefits.
The cost of Preferred Seats ranges between $5-$45, and they’re available in one Economy row on all Qantas aircraft, excluding the turboprop fleet. Qantas Frequent Flyers can also use Qantas Points to purchase their Preferred Seats.
Please see details (correct at 12 July 2019) below.
Within the check-in flows, Preferred Seats are complimentary and will just appear as standard seats.
For voluntary flight changes made by the customer, where the same seat category is not available on the new flight, no refund of the Preferred Seat fee will be available. For involuntary changes made by Qantas, where the same seat category is not able to be offered on the new flight, a refund may be requested.

We’d love to hear from you.
