  1. How Airlines Go About Price Gouging On Seat Selection Seats are a precious piece of real estate that airlines don't want to miss cashing on. According to a recent trend amongst all the major airlines indicate that finding your preferred seat may get more intense than ever. Many airlines are utilizing a heat map for the seat selection process to understand which seats get lapped up as soon as they are made available so as to spot the opportunity to earn extra from these seats. Major proportion of big American players have already adopted the bare bone fare structure on many routes where they are only charging the economy passengers with a discounted fare, giving them the leeway to pick and choose what they want when it comes to extras including reserving the preferred seat which incidentally turns out to be the biggest ancillary revenue earner for them followed by the baggage fee. Why Is Charging For Seat Selection So Profitable For Airlines? Baggage services incur cost on management and labour and so does the food, however, costs involved with seat selection are relatively low that makes it all the more an attractive proposition for the airlines. This is no hidden fact that many airlines in the past have come under the scanner for initially separating the members of families, especially kids to fly separately. As per a study, a family of four may have to spill out as much as $800 in the name of seat reservation just to keep themselves seated side by side on a domestic flight as per a survey. Airlines charge for everything from choosing bulkhead to emergency or exit row seats and the price may vary depending on whether you make a request online at the time of booking or do it on the spot at the airport. Latest Trend With Major American Carriers

  2. Now, United Airlines’ all-inclusive economy fare has started going the way of the dodo ever since United has announced its plan to selling bare bone fares in the economy class to compete with the low-cost carrier counterparts like Spirit, Frontier, and Allegiant. This is going to make the United Airlines Reservations more cumbersome and will make the customers cough up extra fee every time they choose a preferred exit or an aisle seat for themselves. As per the new United Airlines Reservations policy announcement on their website, the impression it gives is that it is rather imperative for those who are travelling with their family and kids to purchase their advance seat assignment.
