FAQs

Online seat assignment

How do I assign my seats online?

Follow the simple on screen instructions to pre assign your seats online. Remember to select your outbound and return seats (if you have booked a return flight), you will be prompted to select a seat, after you have entered your personal details. If you do not wish to pre-assign a seat simply click ‘save and continue’.

What does the screen look like and how do I navigate it?

The screen that allows you to select your seat shows an image of an aircraft, the seats on the image are different colours, to the left of the image is a key which highlights which seats are available for you to pre-assign. By clicking on an available seat you will pre-assign it to you or a member of your party, this will be highlighted by ‘tiny.’ To de-select your seat click on it again and make another selection.
What do I do next?

Once you are happy with your seat selection click ‘save and continue’ to proceed to the purchase section.
Is there a charge?

Yes, bmibaby charges from just £5.50 (€6.50) fee per seat, per one way flight for the pre-assigned seating. You will pay for this with the rest of the flight at the purchase stage; the charge will be highlighted separately.

What if I change my mind?

If at any time you change your mind about any part of the booking, simply click the back button (which is on each page). However, once you have entered the payment details and confirmed the flight you will need to contact the Reservations department on 0905 8282828 (Calls cost 65p per minute from a BT Landline. Calls from mobiles and other networks will be considerably more) any changes in dates, times or name changes can be arranged on this number for a fee. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What if I don’t pre-assign my seat now? how do I get a seat on the aircraft?

bmibaby gives you the option to pre-assign your seats online, at the time of booking if you wish. If you prefer not to pre-assign, we will still allocate you a seat number when arriving at check-in so don’t worry, when flying with bmibaby you will still avoid the scrum for seats.
