I'll ride, thanks

My sister is also due to attend a workshop in Birmingham, then another in Edinburgh, so has been trawling obscure websites trying to book cheap flights.

A certain budget airline doesn't routinely operate seat allocation, but it is possible to book specific seats in advance (to guarantee a family will sit together, or similar). However, that costs £5 per person. £5!? I could understand a nominal admin fee (for, what, putting 'reserved' signs on the appropriate seats?) but when the cost of the flight itself, including taxes, is only £17, £5 seems punitive, even exploitative. Maybe that's the intention – deliberate discouragement.

Thing is, they'll carry bikes, for a surcharge of... £5.
