So if you are a family travelling with young or even primary school age children, you are probably best to reserve seats just to be certain.
Dunno as know some people who will gladly put it to chance and tell SWMBO that its all airlines fault he is at the front and she with the kids at the back.

So easyjet are due to announce seasonal NQY - LPL & SEN tomorrow, great news for NQY.

Any chance in seeing some more EZY routes to NQY announced for next year ? EDI would certainly seem the obvious extra route, it's previously been served by BE for the last x years but seems dropped next year.

How did you find out that the last airline you used started at the back and allocated seats as customers checked-in?

Checked in and was offered 31F or equivalent in the last row next to the loo. As I didnt like the seat, I didnt proceed with the check-in and simply went through the check-in procedure at intervals watching how the seats were allocated. Eventually they reached a seat which suited my particular preferences.

I dont think the last row of seats is normally a popular choice (although it may be ideal for some people) so it seemed a little unfair on those who checked-in first.

Well, if you were to get the last row of a easy 320 you'd actually find yourself with a lot more leg room ...

No you wouldn't. The last row is actually quite tight and is the 29" seat pitch which is banded around whilst the rows further forward have considerably more leg room. But many pax still seem to like the row and generally speaking there is an even split between those who prefer the front and who prefer the rear. I prefer the rear.

Back row on the right has plenty of room. It's the left that's cramped

Just wondered, but are easyJet still "proudly" selling and serving Starbuck's coffee on flights?

Domestic air travel between the main cities are falling significantly let alone from minor airports!

Be that as it might be but EZY are starting SEN & LPL - NQY next summer.

Considering the size of the base at EDI I just wondered if a 3 or 4 weekly EDI-NQY could be squeezed into the schedule for that base

I think that the "minor airport" comment was aimed at NQY to be honest with you !

Both are minor airports. Anything under 2.5 million passengers per annum (ie around 200,000 passengers per month) should be classed as "minor", let alone 500,000!

By that reckoning only Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Stansted, Luton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Glasgow GLA, Bristol, Liverpool, Newcastle, East Mids, Belfast BFS, Aberdeen, London City, Leeds/Bradford and Belfast BHD would be classed as major airports.
