Hi there,

Do you feel the need to allow customers select seat for each segment?

What if Window seats are available for some flights but not all in the Itinerary? Should not customer be allowed to select Window seats (which he prefers) on some flights and Aisle seats on the others?

The requirement that the system will return seat numbers is a little strange because I have not seen an airline system assign seats at reservation time, they usually done that at check-in time, on a 1st come 1st serve basis. Any one feels the same as I do?

Thanks,
Yan

If its not in the requirement I may not add that functionality. It may be a nice to have feature, but requirements rule. Showing seat locations window / aisle / mid-seat would require additional work because of the differences in layouts of different aircrafts.

There might be some other use for the returned seat numbers, or rather to see it from a different perspective, the returned seat numbers may be seen as additional unsolicited information. Just to use this extra data I do not want to add unmentioned requirements. Read thru the complete requirements to see if this seat numbers have some other use.
