AF extends Seat Plus option

Air France passengers travelling in economy and premium economy on short and medium-haul flights can now pay for the carrier’s Seat Plus option.

The service offers a guarantee of a seat with more legroom and additional comfort. It is already available on the French carrier’s long-haul flights.

Seat Plus passengers can choose to travel on seats next to the emergency exits and will receive a minimum addtitional 10cm of legroom.

The option can be bought either when checking-in online, using a self-service kiosk or at an airport AF counter.

Seat Plus costs ten euros for a flight that lasts 90 minutes or less, 15 euros for flights lasting between 90 and 150 minutes, and 20 euros for flights longer than 150 minutes. There is no charge for AF-KLM Skyteam Elite Plus members.

Last week, it was announced that Air France-KLM Flying Blue members are now able to use their air miles on flights operated by the group’s budget carrier (see news, April 4).

  • If this is only available with the emergency exit then AF (like Easyjet) are offering a service that discriminates against disabled passengers who will not be allowed to purchase these seats. Someday, I intend to write a letter of complaint to Easyjet pointing out that they must be breaching the Disability Discrimination Act by selling these seats at a premium. It’s not an issue if they don’t sell these at a premium or if they offer other seats with extra legroom that are not emergency exit rows.

  • not a good idea to pay for these seats…on a recent trip with KLM and boarding last I found the exit row empty – no one had paid – naturally I sat down and enjoyed the seat!
