Received email today to say that we could check in online for our flights (30 days in advance)
Checked in online, for both outbound and return.
Was given the option to pay £3 per person per journey (so £12) I declined.
Two seats together both ways at no extra cost and no stress of all that speedy board malarkey.
I would not be bothered about being separated but this is so much easier and more civilised than the first come first served system
