Hi babaSouth

I do believe that extra legroom seats cost £50 per person return....for short/mid haul flights I always book extra legroom seats much more comfortable and definitely worth the extra cost, then being squeezed into the other seats.........the extra legroom seats are normally by the emergency exits so can get a little cold especially on your Inbound flight, so just make sure you have a pashmina or jacket to wear.....

Not for Baba but for any first time flyers that are looking to book the exit seats, always check the airlines small print.

Extract from Wikipeadia

Since passengers seated in an exit row must be able and willing to assist the crew during an evacuation of the aircraft, civil aviation boards and national governments set specific requirements for passengers seated in an exit row. While exact requirements vary by country and airline, frequently exit row passengers must:

Be of a certain age, ranging from 12-18 depending on the airline's policies and/or local law.

Not be travelling with anyone requiring special assistance in an emergency (such as an infant or person with a disability), or an animal (including service animals)

Have no physical or mental impairment that would hinder quickly reaching and operating the emergency exit.

Speak and read the national language of the airline's home country (e.g. English on Qantas, Arabic on Etihad or German on Lufthansa, etc...)

Not use a seatbelt extension.

Be able to lift 27kg/ 60lb (for window exits only)

I’ve seen the seatbelt extension rule catch a few people out

My son works in an airport, recently 2 passengers had to be moved from extra legroom seats due to their size as they needed seatbelt extensions.
