YourFare - airberlin’s fare structure
Can I sit next to my travelling companion on the aircraft, if I book in the JustFly fare category?

With the JustFly fare, you can also take advantage of an additional service and reserve your seat (including an XL seat for extra legroom) when booking. When you check in online, you cannot choose your own seat - the system will assign you a seat, taking into account the environmental and financial impact on the aircraft's loading. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that those travelling together will be seated together if they do not have seat reservations.
