End of great easyJet seat stampede?
The stampede to get a seat on budget airlines is often cited as one of the biggest bugbears among passengers.
And now easyJet has responded to that by introducing allocated seating on flights – but as ever with budget airlines there is a sting in the tail when it comes to cost.
The airline, which is the biggest operator of scheduled flights from Bristol Airport, says passengers will have the option to choose from three bands of pricing – £3, £8 or £12 – depending on where they want to sit.
Anyone who chooses not to pay to select their seat will be given their seat number when they check in, either online or at the airport.

EasyJet trialled allocated seating during the summer season to stress-test the new systems and procedures.
The budget carrier said it would roll out allocated seating during the winter season when fewer people travel to ensure a smooth transition from one system to another.
It added the trial showed that allocated seating could be delivered “at the same time as maintaining strong levels of on-time performance and without adding cost”.
