Pollina Tours makes the booking with the Group Department of the airline, which means all the group members must travel together to and from a common gateway, as one Group. The Group tickets are lower fare tickets and carry restrictions. The tickets are nonrefundable, non-transferrable, non–re-routable, non-upgradable and non-endorsable. Policies governing seat assignments for groups vary greatly by airline. Most airlines currently offer preferred seating, a system which allows them to charge additional fees for more desirable seats, which may include window and aisle seats. As a result, many seats displayed on airline seat maps are set aside for clients willing to pay additional fees for them. Some seats may only be accessible at airport check-in, although sometimes passengers with frequent flyer status may have earlier access. Seat assignments preferences are not guaranteed by POLLINA TOURS. Loss of assignments may occur, at any time, due to airline schedule changes, or even as a result of individual passengers making changes directly with airlines on their group seat assignments. In many cases, airlines will not assign seats for groups until approximately 30 days prior. At this time, POLLINA Tours will do all possible to seat passengers together and in the best available seats. However, it may not be possible for POLLINA Tours to assign seats of each passenger's individual choice. Once assigned, typically seats may only be changed at airport check-in. Domestic US flights, as well as flights within Europe, do not permit group seat assignments. An exact passport name is required to complete seat assignments. Subsequent name corrections may result in the loss of seat assignments, in addition to other fees. Some airlines reserve the right to refuse subsequent seat changes, once preliminary seat assignments have been completed. Airline reservation agents are often prohibited from assisting with seat requests for group reservations. Our Group tickets are group coach class (standard regular economy class) restricted tickets and therefore Pollina Tours does not guaranteed upgrade to higher class such as Premium economy, Business class or First class.
