Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

I've used some QF FF points for a business class flight for my wife and I back from London (paid to travel in biz on the way there). The flights are on Cathay Pacific, and whilst we can select our seats on the way to the UK, I'm not given the option to do so on the CX flights (I assume because they're a reward/points flight). Is there any point in reaching out to Cathay Pacific? Or will I simply get “you'll be allocated seats on checkin”? We're both QF Gold.

If you go to the cathay pacific website and enter the booking reference that was given to you by qantas when you made the FF redemption booking, you should be able to access your booking and reserve seats there.

Or just call up Qantas and give them the booking reference and they can somehow do it through their end.
All sorted - thanks all!
