Ryanair to Test Pre-Assigned Seating

Ryanair, which has offered priority boarding for 4 Euros allowing passengers to board early, is now catching up with much of the rest of the world by offering pre-assigned seats for 10 Euro (about $14) on a handful of routes.

Although the airline threatens constantly to start charging for bathroom usage, that is just a bunch of nonsense, especially considering they haven’t even begun to tap into the pre-assigned seat market. Many passengers have said that they won’t fly the airline because of the lack of pre-assigned seats (among other reasons, of course), but this should make their incredibly low fares a bit more bearable (for some).

Seating will be available on flights between Dublin & Malaga and Dublin & London-Gatwick beginning May 16.

  1. I often travel with Ryanair and I would have to say that in all honesty I have never had any problems. as long as you stick to their rules everything goes smoothly. Their incredibly low fares and almost flawless punctuality make them the goto airline. The problems that you hear of are mostly down to the passengers not paying attention and not reading their documentation correctly, there are also a certain number of travel providers who are to blame for not preparing their clients for the trip.
