This next pay will have us booking our flights for next year (Brisbane to L.A) and we want to buy 6 seats for the 5 of us (mainly for DH who has scoliosis and can't stay cramped for too long) has anyone done this before? If so can we do it online or do we have to ring and book over the phone? And if we do can we get the same price that is listed online or is it more expensive to do it over the phone?

I checked and apparently you can purchase via Qantas a "comfort seat" which can only be done over the phone.
Not sure about other airlines.

Have you considers flying Air New Zealand. I don't know if they have flights from Brisbane to LA but worth checking as their economy sky beds are fantastic.

I know you can purchase a 'comfort seat' when flying with an infant with virgin so I don't see why they would not let you do the same thing for medical reasons. I believe you do need to do this over the phone but not sure about cost.

keep in mind that you won't have to pay taxes and fees for the comfort seat so it should help keep cost down.
I personally believe that a second seat makes a world of difference, especially on international flights.
Exit rows are good but people that like to stand and shake their legs tend to stand and crowd the area during the flight which is super annoying.

Thanks everyone, we are hoping if we book 6 seats where it is 2 rows of 3 then we can lift arm rests up in one row and DD and DS1 can top and tail on it when sleep is needed and with the other one we can lift the armrests up and DH and I can have the 2 end seats and stretch across diagonally with our feet meeting on the floor in front of the centre seat (if that makes sense) and have DS2 lay down with his head on my lap and feet in DH's when he wants to nap. And DH will swap with one of the older kids when they aren't sleeping so he can use 2 seats to be comfortable.
