Several years ago now we were flying back from Dalaman on an airline that has since been banned from the EU and we were asked to move from the exit row and swap with the passengers in the row behind. That started a little discussion as I had the window seat by the exit and knew what to do, then my (at the time) 10 year old son and then my Wife on one side. On the other side was (only two seats from memory) my 16 year old son who was about 6ft tall and a regular rugby playing 2nd row player along with a guy that needed a stick to get along the cabin, was about 80 years old) and sat at the exit. Now in the even of an emergency, my money would have been on my son getting that exit open and out the exit before the 80 year old worked out what was happening. Instead the lovely crew insisted that myself and my two sons switched with a group of ever so slightly intoxicated ladies in the row behind. Great!!!! This was made even worse by the fact that even with my short legs, I could not actually get my knees in behind the seat in front due to the VERY short pitch between the seats.

Needless to say, it wasn't a great loss to European aviation when they were banned from EU airspace.

If you're on a connecting flight with a tight interval, the system will often give you a forward seat so you can get off first.

Always check both full service and LCC prices, don't automatically assume LCC will be cheaper as they may have filled up rapidly and only have high fares left.

BA seem to be going the way of AerLingus, which have so many add ons that should be included with a full service fare that there is little reason to choose them over a low cost.

Absolutely the truth - and the trouble is they're not as efficient as a LCC at things like turning the plane around, boarding people or getting the luggage off - worst of all worlds.
