The question is does anyone else have a similar experience? or in a similar situation to us and how do you deal with it............and before anyone suggests that we ring the helpline in UK have done s...

As far as I am aware you can't pre-book seats. As I explained above in my opinion Speedy Boarding is the way to go. The following link explains about their boarding procedure http://www.easyjet.com/EN/Flying/boarding.html If you have no hold baggage you can check-in on-line. Also if you are on an ea...

We've used easyJet a few times now and can't fault them at all. We paid for speedy boarding at christmas and were one of the first on the plane. Well worth the extra money as we were able to choose the emergency window seats with lots of legroom. All your personal belongings have to go in the overhe...

Agree with safeashouses, apart from the heating bit! Not sure who spends £50 a week on heating! I'd be upset if I was spending half, or possibly a quarter of that. Well our monthly direct debits in UK (and I realise that includes standing charges) for gas, electric and metered water = £150 (and pow...
