    Apparently, this new 'all singing all dancing' system to pre book seats is well, rubbish. As a result the launch date of 25th June has been suspended. So for the time being a least you cannot pre book your seats for your flight until 60days out.

    This will mean that you cannot book your seats along with your booking with them as planned (not yet anyway). It is still £25 per person each way to pre book (which funny enough is the same amount as the extra leg room seats).

    However, if you booked before the cut off (think it was around december 13) you won't have to pay this £25 fee.

    Not happy as I was hoping to book our seats on Wednesday however i means i've now got to wait another month before I am able to do so.

    Thought you guys would like to know :)

    Thanks Keith. I reckon it would be a disgrace if they charged even more in UC for this privelege.

    As above. Apparently dates apply to all but there is no charge to UC and for those who booked before the cut off.
