Virgin Australia 777 Seat Allocation issues - Row 8 blocked?

I had 8K allocated from early this year for a BNE-LAX flight in September - over the weekend, they have changed. When I have gone to try and get these seats back, they are claiming they are locked. I am a Platinum with VA. Anyone other VA Platinum's having issues with seat allocations on the new 777 layout???

I'd be guessing staff rest area.

I doubt it's for staff rest as the 77W's have a crew rest compartment.

More likely that it's either for a VIP that has requested the seat, or most liekly for a wheelchair PAX as they are normally on the starboard side near the exits.

having a problem with the rail for the curtains so they have blocked the seats as the light from the bar is streaming in to row 8. Should be fixed ASAP

Thanks Southland - definately wouldn't want to be in row 8 now until this is fixed.
