Emirates extends paid-for seat selection policy
EMIRATES has quietly introduced an amended advance seat selection policy, with economy passengers facing charges of up to US$135 per flight to select the most sought-after seats.
The carrier originally launched advance seat selection fees last year for economy class passengers travelling on Special and Saver fares. The new policy, valid for tickets bought after August 20, sees a range of fees introduced for certain “Extra Value” seats.
These range according to seat, route and destination. As an example, a preferred seat closer to the front of the plane, allowing you to disembark earlier, will cost between US$25 and US$80, while an extra legroom seat could cost between US$55 and US$135. emirates.com
