EasyJet Extra Leg Room Seats
#1
Have any of you recently bought extra leg room seats from EasyJet please and how much did you pay? We have bought these for many years as Mr GSD is tall and standard seats are very uncomfortable for him. I can't remember exactly how much but they never seemed to be that expensive,  We have just booked a flight and have been charged £91.96 for return seats. Apart from this being an odd amount it seems extremely expensive.

GSDGirl a couple of questions where did you book from UK or Spain? I know you are on Easy Jet but reason I ask is that Ryan Air charge a supplement if they see you booking in Spain i.e. Spanish ISP and there could be a currency conversion issue to give the odd amount.  Ryan air charge £20 per passenger per flight for front row seats so our June / July trip is £80 return for the front row seats.

We have never paid less than an additional £20 per seat for an EasyJet extra legroom seat usually row 12 or 13 and the cost for each seat usually ends in 99p so I think by Budget airline standards what you have been charged is reasonable

I maybe dreaming this but I think Ryanair charge the same figure eg 20 additional per seat whether in  Stg or Euros and makes it worthwhile logging in to the ES site -EasyJet do make the conversion between currencies.

We booked from Wales. We don't normally use a Travel Agent but did on this occassion. The cost seemed a lot more that what we paid at Christmas. We booked 9 months in advance of flying then, may be that made a difference as we only booked 2 weeks in advance this time and we had the only two seats left returning. Seems we paid the going rate. Thank you for replys.

This is the blurb currently on the EJ website!

You can pick your favourite spot on the plane by buying one of the seating options below. If you don't select a seat we'll assign seats randomly for free when you check in and will do all we can to ensure everyone on the booking sits together. However this is not guaranteed, especially when checking in closer to departure.

Allocated seating - First row (Extra legroom)
minimum & maximum charges
£12.99 - £29.99
Selecting these seats also gets you:
  • A second, small under seat cabin bag
  • Dedicated Bag Drop
  • Speedy Boarding so you get on board first

Allocated seating - Up Front / Overwing (Extra Legroom)
minimum & maximum charges
£7.99 - £24.99
Selecting these seats also gets you:
  • A second, small under seat cabin bag

  • Dedicated Bag Drop

  • Speedy Boarding so you get on board first
    Allocated seating - Other seats
minimum & maximum charges
£1.99 - £8.99
Pick the seat you want on the rest of the aircraft.

Thanks Tamara, we read that information on the EJ website but couldn't really understand why the big difference in the prices. £12.99 x 4  (51.96) and £29.99 x 4 (£119.96) is a considerable difference and we both felt sure we didn't pay as much at Christmas. I raised the question in case the Travel Agent had made a mistake and overcharged us. It seems that which leg room seats you book, when you book and where you are going comes into the equation. We wont be able to come and visit you as we are going to Portugal but look forward to seeing you at Christmas.

It usually depends how long the flight is. If the flight takes less than an hour (Amsterdam, Paris, etc) they charge less than on four hours flight to Canaries. I also recall seeing a slight difference in seat prices between flights from the UK to Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria so the demand could play a tiny role in the pricing too.

I thought that too Sam but the seats on 2 hours 40 to Portugal are more expensive than what we paid at Christmas for 4 hour flight to Fuerteventura. That's why we were confused. Still is seems if you've got long legs you have to pay whatever they decide on the day and I (all 5' 4") have to pay extra for the pleasure of sitting next to Mr. GSD Smile

Just booked for Oct/Nov with Ryanair prices from EMA risen by about £20 per person each way but the thing that did annoy me the new charge for front seats on my flight was £28 per person each way not bothered this time.
