Ryanair extends reserved seating to all routes

Following what promised some time ago, Ryanair is extending the reserved seating option in all their routes. There will not many airlines now not asking us to pay for the seats when booking our flight. Specially the low cost carries, if I am not wrong, only Easyjet is not charging for it, but they are planning to do it.


News on Business Traveller:
Budget carrier Ryanair will allow customers on all routes to purchase reserved seating from January 10 following a successful six-month trial (see online news November 7). The pre-booking service will be charged at €10 each way and will include priority boarding.
The optional service will allow passengers to secure favourable seats in the front two rows for a swift exit, or over the wings in rows 16 and 17, which offer extra legroom (to see a seat plan click here).  
This move comes as an allocated seating policy is proving increasingly popular with low cost carriers looking to boost ancillary revenues. Easyjet recently launched an allocated seating trial (see online news November 15), and Bmibaby launched a FlyPlus fare which includes seat assignment (see online news September 7).

Bad news for all of us, paying already the fuel surcharges and all the fare increases, apart from the services on board!
