    I did check out their website and couldnt see if it was extra for big boned peeps, US Airlines do though, bet they sell a few.

    Nope, Aer Lingus don't have an overweight policy ( for passengers) plus they have introduced seat reservations at time of booking. Costs 5 euro and is much more civilised than the cattle stampede at rYanair ( even with priority boarding)

    I had an allocated seat with Thomas Cook. 35A. No one on the seats next to me and nobody in the four rows behind either. Perfect.
