Booked flights for myself and my partner together, so that both our names are listed in the same itinerary. Didn't want to pay extra to select seats as I figured I could select seats myself when I check in online. I check in for both of us online and we are automatically allocated separate seats on the same row but seats B and E so that we're both in the middle seat but on either side of the plane. When I phoned Jetstar to find out why their system allocated separate seats to 2 people on the same itinerary, all they could offer was to allocate seats next to each other at extra charge. No thanks! We ended up just moving seats when the plane took off. Good on ya Jetstar for programming your system to allocate separate seats to passengers travelling together AND training your staff to extract more money from passengers!
