Virgin Atlantic to charge you for reserving your seat
Virgin Atlantic are going to start charging passengers £25 if they want to reserve their seat in advance, which is nice of them. That's £25 each way too, which means, if you would like to sit next to your partner there and back, that's £100 for the pair of you.
This new fee comes into play on the Gatwick to Las Vegas service from April 2014.
This same charge will be introduced on flights to Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Australia from the beginning of May and all other flights to absolutely anywhere will get the same charge from June 1.
On the Virgin Atlantic website, they say: "If you already have a seat selected for a flight that departs either before or after 01 April 2014 you will be able to keep it."
British Airways also charge to reserve a seat and Ryanair and EasyJet moved to an allocated seating system also.
