Any idea how to book a premium rouge seat?

#1 Post by CpnCrunch » Mon Dec 01, 2014 8:00 pm

I went through the booking process, right up to (but not including) actually paying, and I'm stumped as to how to actually book a premium rouge seat BEFORE paying for the flight. 29in of legroom is simply insufficient. I want to know whether there will be any premium seats on the flight, and how much it will cost.

Perhaps time to go back to flying with Westjet, even if they are a bit more expensive.

As I didn't want to be on hold for an hour waiting to talk to someone I just went ahead and booked it. After booking you can choose a preferred seat ("Rouge Plus") for $42 each way (at least on YVR-LAX), which gives 35in of legroom. There's about 6 rows of these seats, so there shouldn't be a problem with them getting booked up.

I think "Rouge Premium" costs a lot more, and is like business class.

Ahhh the classic "Impulse Buy" tactic....gets you all the time! So if they only sell 1 row of premium, I guess a select number of passengers will be pleasantly surprised!

I believe the way to select a premium rouge seat prior to booking is select the business class fare as apposed to Tango or Flex.
