    Hi, we have just booked next years holiday to Skiathos which we have flown before. This route has always used 757’s so we have selected the extra legroom seats option. One of our party has slight mobility issues so can’t sit in an emergency exit row and the select seats option is not available until 90 days prior to the return date so my question is how can we be sure that extra legroom seats in the non emergency exit rows will be available?

      Hi Adrian, We would advise contacting the Customer Welfare department as they will be able to advise what seating would be available for the passenger with mobility issues ^James
