Reply To: BA turning into Low Cost with “Buy On Board”

Back to Forum



Why not mention Vueling’s innovative approach?

As to siitting together, if one of the party does not have status on BAEC, you either pay for seats or take a chance of a block being available at -24. I don’t notice that featuring much in the ad campaign.

I don’t often fly easyJet or Ryanair, but when I do, there is no scrum, simply an orderly boarding process that allows one to get on first.

Do I prefer this? Of course not, I like the Vueling model where I can buy an allocated duo seat for 40€ and have the middle one free, as well as sitting at the front of the aircraft.


“BoB should represent an increase in passenger choice, not a decrease, while at the same time keeping fares competitive.

I seem to remember such words being spoken when BACON was launched.
