    Hi,

    Apologies if in the wrong forum, but I have a question over Cross Country seat reservations.

    I'm going to Leeds tomorrow (travelling from Banbury), coming back Thursday evening. It is a work meeting, and for work we have to use our corporate Trainline.com for tickets. In terms of reservations, there is no option to select a specific seat, you're just automatically allocated one.

    Is there any way I can change my seat reservation and select specific seats. I can't do this via The Trainline, but wondering if I can do it via CrossCountry somehow?

    Thanks.

    Trainline allows you to choose preferences, such as forward-facing, window seat etc, but this isn't always guaranteed. Can't choose specific seats however, would likely have to go to a booking office or contact XC themselves to do that.

    Never known Cross Country offer forward/backward facing, for some reason.

    Probably because the sets reverse too many times in the course of a day for it to be practicable.
