Ryanair to launch reserved seating

Ryanair is to perform an about-face and introduce reserved seating on some flights, it announced April 19.

Europe's largest budget carrier said that it would trial reserved seating, where customers are issued with a seat number before boarding, on certain flights operating to and from Dublin and the UK/Spain.

The new system, which will come into effect May 16, will allow customers to pre-reserve seats in the first two rows or over-wing rows (where there is more legroom) for an additional €10 each way, which includes priority boarding, normally €4.

A spokesperson for the airline said that if the service proved popular, it would be rolled out selectively on other Ryanair routes in the coming months.
