Plenty of extra space: Book the adjacent vacant seat for an even more comfortable trip

Sometimes a little more personal space is just what you need. Treat yourself to extra comfort and simply book the seat next to you on continental and intercontinental routes.

We recommend you book the neighbouring vacant seat in the following circumstances:

  • You would like more space for your personal comfort
  • You are not in a position to be seated in a single seat due to your physical build
  • You are unable to fold down both armrests
  • You cannot fasten your seat belt despite the use of a single seat belt extension

Depending on the booking situation, you can reserve your adjacent seat and make sure that the seat is guaranteed to remain empty. Please call our Service Center to do this.

On the day of your departure, depending on availability, you can purchase a neighbouring vacant seat from EUR 59* directly at the check-in counter at the airport.

* Prices vary depending on the route. Price only valid for purchase at the check-in counter on the day of departure.

More space, more service, more comfort: Your upgrade to Business Class

As well as more personal space on board you can also enjoy the many other benefits of Business Class. Before departure, visit our lounges and save valuable time with priority check-in and priority boarding.

You can upgrade your Economy Class ticket from six weeks before your flight to no later than four hours before departure.
