Flight Extras

I wish to book seats with extra space, are there any restrictions?

Seats with extra space can be pre-booked on a number of airlines for an extra charge, however these are subject to availability and some airlines do not allow you to prebook. These seats are often close or next to emergency exit doors, behind a bulkhead or behind a dividing wall. They may therefore have additional space in front of the seat, but not always additional room to stretch your legs out. To check availability and book extra legroom seats please call our Customer Services Team.  

Emergency exit row seats are only available to passengers who are able to move quickly and operate the emergency exit without difficultly if necessary, in line with European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) regulations.  These regulations have been put in place by the EASA and are for the safety of all passengers. The cabin crew have the final say and we kindly ask that their decisions are respected.

Some factors can restrict passengers from using exit seats:

  • physical or mental impairment or disability
  • age or sickness
  • physical size
  • who requires an extension seatbelt
  • passengers who have difficulty moving quickly
  • anyone under the age of 14 (whether accompanied or not)
  • those under the influence of alcohol
  • travelling with an assistance animal

Extra Leg Room seats are not available to pre-book on all airlines. Some choose to allocate these seats at check-in due to the restrictions listed above.
