Easyjet beginning seat allocation??

Flybe were crowing about Easyjet copying their business model and they said on the website....

Flybe understands the needs of the business traveller and offers pre-assigned seating as an added complimentary benefit when travelling on Economy Plus unlike Easyjet who seek to charge for this service.

So does anyone know anything about this?? I guess if they are going to charge people to pre-allocate seats, everyone is going to have to be given a seat at check in otherwise there will be a right fiasco, someone sat in 3A when you've paid to reserve it!

easyJet are trialing a service where you pay 5 and get to board the aircraft first aren't they? so they are not allocating seats but are giving some people the chance to choose their seats first.

any idea of what will happen if everyone pays 5 to get first dibs on the best seats (again it will be a nightmare)

the only way i see this happening is that they assign seats on check in and tuff if you don't get a good seat (IE window seat or exit seats)

My sentiments exactly! If 50% of passengers opt for the 5 enhancement its not really going to be that special and will still result in utter chaos

This has been ongoing for some time and easyJet only make the service available to 30 pax per flight, not more. You effectively get the chance to pay extra for a boarding card in the 1-30 group called for boarding first.

Now if they only took the extra six seats out of the 319s, reduced to 150 and put the first five rows at higher 34-35 inch seat pitch, they could charge even more for this product and cut costs by removing the fourth cabin crew member from the flight. I'm sure the revenue from selling these seats on every flight would outweigh the revenue loss from the 10-15% of A319 flights where the last six seats are occupied.

I always thought that this should be an option on loco's. You could actually choose your seat online (at cost) double for an emergency or bulkhed. Then print it off on line for example a large 12A printed on your confirmation.

Obviously flight number and date of travel match. Passengers in possesion of one of these would be allowed to board first, then the rugby scrum would start. If you turn up late you lose your seat and join the scrum.

Do pre-boards still board ahead of those paying this premium? Some flights can have 20+ pre-boards.

As a result of serious disruption to the flying programme as a result of extraordinary circumstances, easyJet regrets having to cancel the following flights:

Any ideas what the serious disruption is?

Well, if you´re looking for a spectacular headline I have to disappoint you.

What´s the one thing all those cancelled flights have in common? Yup: FRANCE. Guess who is on strike today? French ATC ring a bell?

EZY EMA

Does seem strange that EMA has been forgotten about, may be the presence of BMi.

Fingers crossed ...................
