Ryanair, the largest European low-cost carrier, announced in 2013 that it is extending its reserved seating service due to customer demand. The airline’s new policy will include 8 rows of reserved seating per flight – an increase from the 6 rows of reserved seating at present.
Extended reserved seating will now allow 45 passengers per flight to choose their seats prior to boarding. The reserved seating rows are 1, 2, 5, 15, 16, 17, 32 & 33.
Reserved seating, which costs £10-£15 (about $15-$23) per seat each way, allows passengers to reserve seats in the aircraft cabin’s front and back as well as over the wing (for greater legroom).
The airline launched reserved seating, which also includes priority boarding, in November 2012.
