Easyjet and kids
IME both Ryannair and EJ will find seats for you together. I also refuse to pay the extra for priority boarding etc and when I have been alone with three small kids they have just let me on first in the case of Ryannair or found me seats together in the case of EJ.Posted 4 years agojohnj2000Member
Under 5’s get you on first I think without paying for priority. We have risked it a cpl of times now both children are above 5 and never had a problem. Put it this way, nobody will want to share a journey with other peoples children sat next to them so the will swap. Or you could just stump up the 3 quid for a stress free start to the hols.Posted 4 years agorevs1972Member
Last time we flew Ryanair with the boy , we paid for priority boarding for just the wife , who “reserved” us 3 seats in a row. Seemed worth it to get to sit together.
Was quite amusing when a well to do family turned up after the priority queue had gone through, and the rest of us had boarded the plane. They were demanding they were given seats together as they had paid for the priority boarding, and it all got a bit heated until a fellow passenger got involved and ever so politely * persuaded them to take the seats that were left.
* polite may not be the correct term in this casePosted 4 years agoiamsporticusMember
I have NEVER paid for reserved seating and have flown many times with budget airlines and package operators
We often get split 2×2 but each kid has always sat next to one of us
Kids are now 8 and 10, they are pretty grown up and from an early age would have been completely cool sitting next to a stranger with their DS for company if O’Leary ever called my bluff……………Posted 4 years agoDoh1NutSubscriber
Based on our flights at the weekend.
Easyjet have assigned seating – it is no longer a free for all.
The seats are assigned at (on-line) check-in. The three pounds only allows you to choose which seats you are assigned.
Young children still board before the masses (but after speedy boarding)
I was amused that they now specifically ask “Trunkies to be put under the seats infront” which makes a lot of sense, keeps the toys available, the kids dont need the leg room and frees up overhead locker space.Posted 4 years ago
