This shift to nickel and diming you for every little thing is such a nuisance. Thank you all in advance.

It took a few minutes, but this is posted on their website.

Refunds of paid-for seat reservations

Seat reservations that have already been paid for are refundable in the following cases:

An unforeseen disruption, such as bad weather, means you have to be rebooked on another flight on which there is no equivalent seat available for you.

You cancel your flight and your ticket is refundable.

Refunds can be requested in the service area under or through the Lufthansa Service Center, but are not possible either directly at the airport or on board your flight . Please contact Lufthansa as soon as possible after your flight for possible refunds.

Paid-for seat reservations cannot be refunded if:

You cancel your flight and your ticket is non-refundable.

You receive an upgrade from Lufthansa for operational reasons or as a gesture of goodwill.

You change your seat, but the new seat is cheaper than the one you originally booked or is free of charge.

You do not satisfy the conditions for sitting in an emergency exit row.

You rebook your flight , but there are no longer equivalent seats available on the new flight , seat reservations on the new flight are free of charge or this flight is not operated by Lufthansa, Lufthansa Regional or Austrian Airlines .

You change your flight and in the process change the routing.

Thank you so much for finding this. It was very thoughtful of you. Now lets hope I do not need to use the refund request option.
