U.K. low-cost carrier EasyJet today will eliminate unassigned seating and adopt a system that charges passengers for preferred seats. Starting Nov. 27, all EasyJet passengers will be allocated a seat, but if they want a specific seat in the single-class cabin, one near the front or the emergency rows (which have extra legroom) the airline will charge £3-12 (about $5-20) depending on the choice.
