Reply To: BA to charge for seat selection.

Back to Forum


On the radio this morning they reported the new charge by BA for seat selection. The main reason given for it was that people travelling together would be guaranteed sitting together or individuals would be able to have a window or aisle seat. I can accept it for economy and maybe even WTP but as a previous contributor said,why should you pay an extra £120 return on top of a £3600 CW ticket to Australia.

Another thought occurred to me. Can anyone tell me If you are booked for example to travel on BA in CW from Tel Aviv to New York do BA expect you to pay £60 for each of the 4 sectors you will fly to get to NY and back home? That means a whopping £240 return just for the privilege of choosing the seat that you prefer to sit in or possibly £480 if you are travelling with a colleague or partner?

I am somewhat surprised that there is still no comment from VK on this topic!!!
