Flights from the 2 new bases NCE (NTE, BOD, NAP, VCE) and TLS (BRU, NCE, BSL, VCE) are bookable.

There will be a summer route LGW-BRI (3 weekly) from 12th June.

Looks like EZY is ending the scrum for seats with reserved seating on selected routes in 2012 with a view to expanding this if customers like it. Latest news - easyJet plc

Loads weren't too good by easyJet standards, and Flybe had the better position due to business pax transferring from JER to IOM through Luton and vice versa.

racedo, I don't agree, they may not have been 1st to charge for pre assigned seats but they were the first to bring online checkin, 1st to totally cut travel agents in EU and so Ryanair followed their lead.

Easyjet continue to offer differentiation of product with low fares to convenient airports, plus a focus on the business traveller which in my view is a sustainable strategy for the future which is working. Putting a focus on the business traveller has upsides for yield which is especially important in the winter time when their are so many less leisure passengers than in summer.

Actually sometimes being a follower isn't such a bad thing, let others iron out the pitfalls and your launch looks much smoother.

However I agree Easy like Ryanair is following people like Jet2 who have had allocated seating for sometime, or indeed the legacies who have donw it for years.

StoneyBridge Radar, I believe that mikkie4's earlier post was in fact parodying the original.

Being a leader means doing something and following through and then watching everybody attempt to catch up, in this regard Easyjet is a follower.

Nothing wrong with doing this.

I am not sure that having pre-allocated seats other than for extra leg-room seats is a great idea. In all the years we have traveled with EZY Mrs Wowzz and I have never sat apart, and we have never purchased Speedy Boarding. We have also managed never to have to sit near fractious children, as they have already been seated when we boarded.
I would also have thought that seat allocation would have significantly slowed down the entire boardng process, unless a strict control was enforced with regard to boarding by seat roe numbers [ie those at the back board first]
The main benefit will be to stop those couples [you kow who you are!] that sit at an aisle and a window seat, challenging anyone to take the middle seat! If you want three seats, PAY for three seats!

Overall agree with your assessment - I guess that's why they want to test it and see it the cost & complication really outweighs the added revenue.

Worth noting that Easyjet plus customers will also have to pay for those "premium" seats... and they are trying to spin this as an extra convenience !

I too agree withe everything you say. Even on busy flights, with the help of the crew, satisfaction can ultimately be higher than if seats were allocated at check in. However, unallocated seating is unpopular with a hell of a lot of passengers, and it can create tension at times because Joe public doesn't always know that the aircraft has to be 95% full before problems arise for the crew to deal with and they don't always know that relatively few Easyjet flights leave with that kind of pax load. For that reason I fully support allocated seating. Give the passengers what they want.
