I thought easy jet allocate seats now. You also have the option to pay extra and choose the seats you want.

I have booked flights for travel in the next two weeks and didn't pay extra. When I checked in online I have been allocated 3 seats together.

You can now ONLY check in on line, and you will be allocated a seat number if you haven't paid to choose one for yourself.

All seats are pre allocated at online check in. Even before they went online check in only, seats were allocated before airport check in.

"And your point is?"

If you've been allocated a seat number then you can't just sit 'anywhere'.

"I would love to know how one passenger knows how much another has paid for a seat"

It's not rocket science. The cost of pre booking seats is available on the EJ website, and is the same fare for all.

The front 6 rows or so are more expensive than the rear seats.

What an attitude!!! My Ma always says if you can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all !!

Mark, as you say, it's there for all to see !!

I remember the day when you could choose your seats for free at the check in desk... but then we had free on board meals and movies too - good old Mr Bean :)

I won't bother with priority boarding again with Easy, they are a brilliant Airline (ime) far better than Monarch who i only ever used to fly with... customer service especially by cabin crew has always been spot on.

I think the point Jackie was making, is how did the OP know that the other people hadn't paid to choose their seats, and were just sitting anywhere they felt like.

<<I won't bother with priority boarding again with Easy,>>

You can no longer book speedy boarding as a stand alone extra. It is automatically included with flexi tickets, upfront and extra legroom seats, and Easyjetplus Cardholder get it as well.
