Economy Light doesn't have checked bags or advance seat assignment included, so if you need them, go for Economy Classic or Delight.
If you change your mind after you've booked, you can pay to choose your seat in advance from £30 each way in My booking, or take a checked in bag from £45 each way. More on extra baggage here.

*Passengers flying to or from Delhi, Mumbai, Lagos and Johannesburg have a different baggage allowance.

More information about Economy seating

If you're travelling in Economy Light or Economy Classic on one of our 747 aircraft you can choose to sit on the upper deck for an extra charge. Often referred to as 'the bubble', it has a more intimate atmosphere than the main economy cabin. 

If you'd like to upgrade your standard seat to an exit row seat for some extra space, you can do, from only £49 one way. Just head to My booking to check for availability and to book. Alternatively, contact us via whatsapp, text or phone (details below), or just ask at the airport when you check in. Prices may vary in the airport and bear in mind that seats are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Need to knows:

  • To travel in an exit row seat, you must be at least 16 years old on the day of travel, and you cannot be travelling with infants.
  • You must also be fit and able bodied, as in an emergency situation you will need to be able to open the exit door unaided.
  • There may be a bit more bustle around you as the exit rows are often near to the galleys and/or toilets.
  • On some aircraft the additional legroom in the exit window seat can be less in comparison to those next to it. However, all exit row seats offer additional legroom when compared to our standard Economy Classic seating.

Silver Flying Club members are entitled to free standard seat assignment in Economy Light at any time. Anyone else on your booking who isn't a Silver or Gold Flying Club member will need to pay the standard fee to choose their seat in advance though.

If you're a Gold Flying Club member flying Economy Light you can choose seats in advance at any time for free, along with anyone else travelling with you. You can also select an  exit row seat for yourself for free (subject to availability).
