This item appears on page 71 of the June 2011 issue.

Ryanair, the low-cost airline based in Ireland, is allowing passengers to, for a fee, reserve seats in Rows 2 and the emergency exit rows 1, 16 and 17 on routes between Dublin and either Málaga or Gatwick. The seat reservation fee is £10/€10 per person, one way, paid at the time of booking online or by phone but not available for purchase at the airport.

The reserved seating includes “Priority Boarding,” which also can be purchased on its own for £4/€4 per person, one way, when booking the ticket or £5/€5 if purchased at the airport.
