  • Wasn't the £2 charge marked as half price anyway?

    I am surprised at how little Ryanair charge actually, I've got a few BA fares this year and the price to pre book a seat on their is sky high. From memory I paid £10 each per basic seat, no extra leg room or anything.

    Of course BA charge nothing if you select your seat 24 hours prior to departure.

    If people can't sit on their own for a couple of hours on a flight, should they be leaving the house at all?

    I just paid £39.50 for 3 people to select my seats with TUI (standard seating, 2 adults 1 child), Flight out and in so that's over £6 per seat.

    All the airlines are at it

    You don't book seats, and when you board you say, excuse me, would you mind sitting here so I can sit next to my boyfriend / girlfriend / partner / significant other, and put on a puppy face.

    People move.

    Plenty of reasons why people choose to pay to sit together and I find your comment rather odd, I realise I am lucky to be able to afford to choose my seats- but that doesn't mean I would be rude to those who for whatever reason choose not to do so.

    I enjoy my holidays and travel a lot and will always book seats as I actually enjoy sitting next to my OH , we can chat or make plans, rather than risk sitting several seats apart and forced to wave at each other.
