EasyJet unveil pre-allocated seating systemBudget airline easyJet have recently announced that they will be scrapping their infamous first-come, first-served seating system after passenger research revealed that customers were put off by it.

Previous passengers found the boarding process to be stressful, and images of people running as fast as they can from the coach transfer to the airplane often sprang to mind when thinking of easyJet.

The company have been trialling a pre-allocated seating system on selected routes and found that 70% of passengers felt that the boarding experience had improved, and 60% were likely to use easyJet in the future because of it.

The trials aimed to integrate a seating system that did not impact easyJet’s punctuality or add too much cost, and the budget airline believes that they have achieved that.

The pre-allocated seating system will be rolled out across the network starting from 13th November, good news for anyone wanting to enjoy solo holidays in the future with flights from easyJet.
