How Do I Select My Seat on My Orbitz Reservation?

When making your flight reservations through Orbitz, you have the option with a lot of packages to select your seating. During the booking process, you will walk through each flight (connecting flights and return flights for round-trip packages) to choose your seats. You can also work directly with the airline to change seating once you've completed the booking process through Orbitz.

If you are planning a vacation or business trip, you may look at Orbitz as a way to get a great price on your flight. When making your reservation, you want to get a seat that you are comfortable with to make your trip more enjoyable. How do you select your seat on your Orbitz reservation? You can get information and assistance from Orbitz customer support here, and you can find out below how to choose your seat.

Seat selection is crucial for families traveling with children. You may also have a seating preference that you wish to adhere to, such as a window or aisle seat. Medical conditions can also dictate seating preferences for specific flyers.

First, Orbitz will try to get the seat you selected when it sends your reservation to the airline. However, they cannot guarantee you will get the exact seat you selected. You can deal directly with the airline to readjust your seating arrangement if you have seating issues. Additionally, you may not always have the option to select your seats via the Orbitz online reservation service. Second, if you did get the seat you initially requested but need to change it after booking your flight, you will also need to deal directly with the airline for an adjustment.

How to Select Your Seat

When you are ready to make your reservation, you can do so by completing these steps:

  1. Open the Orbitz website in your browser.
  2. Click on "Flights" in the menu bar at the top of the screen.
  3. Enter the airport or city you are "Leaving From" in the first box.

  6. Click "Search."
  7. Choose the departing flight you wish to take.
  8. A window will open on the right-hand side of your screen. Review this information because it will tell you if seat selection is an option for that flight or airline.
  9. Choose your return flight.
  10. Under "Price Summary" click on 'Check Out."
  11. Scroll down to the blue box that says "Select Seat."
  12. Pick the seat you wish from the available options for each flight in your itinerary.
