I just booked the plane tickets for my trip next year to London and Berlin. I have: STL-ORD-LHR (United) LHR-TXL (British Airways) TXL-FRA-ORD-STL (TXL-FRA and FRA-ORD on Lufthansa, ORD-STL on United) STL-LHR and TXL-STL were booked on United's website (the Lufthansa legs are codeshared). LHR-TXL was booked separately on the BA website. I was able to choose my seats for the United legs. I found out on BA's website that I can't choose my seats until I check in for that flight. And I can't figure it out either way if I can choose my seats on the Lufthansa legs. When I try to choose them in my itinerary on United's site, it says it can't show the seat maps for those flights (or something like that) and Lufthansa's website doesn't seem to be telling me much either way. But I can't find anywhere on their site where I can view my itinerary, so do I have to wait until checkin for those too? Also, I return home on March 8, 2009, which is daylight savings time in the US (we go forward an hour). Is DST observed in Germany, and specifically, is it on that day? I know the US moved it up earlier in 2007 and I wasn't sure if the rest of the world did either. I just need to know if before I go to bed on the 7th in Berlin, if I need to set my clock ahead. Last thing I need to do is miss a flight. And I think I might've asked this before in a previous thread, but just to clarify, I know I'll go through customs when I land in London, and when I land in Chicago on the way home. I don't go through customs when I land in Berlin since they're both Schengen countries, right? When I return home, the US customs won't suspect anything's going on if the UK is stamped on my passport but I got off a flight from Germany, will they? This is my first time flying out of the country so this is all new to me. Thanks in advance.
