Reply To: BA to charge for seat selection.

What is the matter with you people?

“I’ve travelled daily First Class for 30 years but this is it – never again”

“Final nail in the coffin for BA (despite every post i’ve ever done on BT suggesting the same)”

NOTHING has been taken away. If you enjoyed a seat allocation with your booking 2 days ago – you still do now if you repeated the booking. So Chill!

All thats happened is those that didn’t have the ability to reserve seats at time of booking now can on payment of a fee. This is good news for people who have posted previously about such things as access to upper deck J class when they are on their (expensive) holidays.

Personally, I’m (selfishly) thinking this might mean less choice for me when i book (as I get existing status rights). But I see exit rows (and I imagine 1st couple of rows) are held back till 10 days before.

But blimey – if some of you people act in the way you do before understanding what is actually happening, no wonder the global economy is in such a mess.
