Once check in has been completed, it is possible to print the boarding pass right away or have it emailed in order to be printed at a later date. The boarding pass can also be saved on a mobile phone to make it even easier to go straight to the gate when travelling solely with hand baggage.

As a lone traveller I am always allocated a seat at the rear of the plane and need to wait until the plane has emptied before leaving myself despite having only a rucsack! No pocket space for items while travelling in these seats either.

They cancelled my flight while I was waiting at the gate with under an hour to go. Information was sketchy and they didn?t attempt to reallocate us to other london flights (of which there was many) leaving then and again later in the evening.

Mr Lucas
Date 2018-02-19 City United kingdom Age 51-70 Class Economy

I was very disappolnted that having paid about ? 25 per seat for 3 seats to be near the front, we were given row 37, which happened to be the second last row!! Very unimpressed as one of the passengers was a toddler. I haven?t reported it as have tried to register a complaint before and not had any satisfactory replies or explanations.
