Ryanair seat reservations

Another cost has been added to travelling with Ryanair with the announcement that it will extend its popular reservation service from four to six rows by adding rows five and 15 on all aircraft which will allow more passengers to hopefully gain their preferred seats on six reserved rows (1, 2, 5, 15, 16 and 17).
Ryanair’s current optional reserved seat service, which costs £10 each way (£15 on longer routes e.g. Canary Islands) and includes priority boarding, allows passengers to reserve seats in the front of the aircraft (for a quick arrival in the baggage hall) or in over-wing rows (for greater legroom). 
Ryanair will continue to offer its Priority Boarding service for just £5, with priority and reserved seating passengers allowed to board the aircraft first.  In other words Priority Boarding passengers will get a choice of seats, but after those with pre-selected placement.  A Ryanair regular has already said that the new arrangement is probably a recipe for chaos. www.ryanair.com
