I was on the Easyjet website when the Summer schedule went live. Some of the return flights the last weekend of August before the kids go back to school were nearly double the previous year. They are clearly taking advantage of the fact it is school holidays. I know the airlines have all had that policy of supply and demand, but not charging nearly double as soon as the flights became available. Thankfully I was able to avoid flying back at the weekend saving nearly £ 900 for 3 of us. As for the allocated seating, I was on one of the trial flights for this and the staff said it was a complete waste of time, as people were turning up at the gate at the last minute to board knowing that they had their seats pre booked, so now instead of boarding the back of the plane first in rows numbers, to speed up the boarding process, it will still be the free for all standing in line half an hour before the plane even pulls in. Nothing changes. They may as well merge both companies and call it EasyRyanJet.
