Can I request a preferred airlines because I have special perks and points with them?
Please leave a note in the "Notes to Organizer" section when registering with your preferred airline(s). We will do our best to accommodate your request but we can't guarantee it.
How do seating arrangements work?
While some airlines allow us to pick your seating ahead of time, others require an additional fee for guaranteeing your seats in advance. If you don't want to pay the fee, you can always wait until seating selection opens up to all the travelers on the flight during check in and take your chances that way. Glimmer Tours does not guarantee seat assignment or cover the costs of additional seat assignment fees. Please call the airlines ahead of time to make proper arrangements.
Can I upgrade my ticket?
Some of our travelers prefer additional leg room on our flights. If that's the case, you will need to call the airlines after we send you your tickets and ask them for an upgrade to economy plus, comfort or an exit seat. To make sure you get the right seating it is best to make these arrangements with the airlines right away and not wait until the last second. Glimmer Tours does not guarantee seating or cover the costs of upgrades.
All seating adjustments/upgrades must be done directly with the airlines.
