    That doesnít sound like much of a bargain to me. It was free up to last month.

    Maybe their policy has changed.
    Whatever the reason, SAL website gave us the option of paying to choose our seats.
    There was no option of choosing seats for free.
    So we decided it was a bargain.

    I don't understand why this is not flagged as a flight safety issue. And I am a qualified Pilot and I really don't understand how the airlines are getting away with it even just on safety grounds. Say the aircraft catches fire on the ground, and I have to get my family out in all the black smoke. I can tell you straight up that I will not be heading for the nearest exit until I have made sure my family are safe, and I would imagine that every other sane dad on the aircraft will hhave the same idea. Lives will definitely be lost in the confusion. This is simply insane, and Ryanair are the worst of all.

    The CEO of Jet2 is Stephen Heapy.

    Why not ask him to justify this policy of separating passengers unless they "choose" to pay extra ?....

    I'm not familiar with Mr. Huzar's case.

    All I can comment on is how they treated me.

    I was expecting treatment akin to that suffered by Dr David Dao at the hands of United Airlines.

    But it turns out it was just a case of a flight delay that went to court

    Jet2 lost the case, appealed and lost that too.

    Well done Mr .Huzar and thanks for the link.

    This thread is about having to pay for pre-allocated seats though, not flight delay compensations, which is a totally different issue.

    And it's not about seating children apart from parents either.
