I certainly did notice this!
I'm pretty annoyed as I was in 27H & K for my MCO flight in September and they've moved me all the way back to 63A & C all the way at the back of the plane and 2 rows from the toilets.
Does anyone see that there could be any benefit in me calling the Flying Club to see if they would move me further up front for free as they changed my booked seats?
It seems to be a new "preferred" seating system introduced from March 15th. They have a section on their website (not well promoted, as expected )
It's worth a shout to them as they do say if you booked before 15th March the charge does not apply.
I had a hell of a job trying to get through and had to give up after 2 hours on hold (what is up with just having those 4 songs for the hold music?)
I managed to get through this morning after a mere 45min wait and spoke to an agent who happily moved my seat allocation with no charge. I have a feeling that they're expecting a few to call and a few to accept/pay.
The agent also noted that they'd been so busy due to Pakistan's status so lots of people trying to reschedule and refund flights.
