Allegiant Changes Family Seating to be More Family Friendly
Good news for families on their summer vacations.......
Allegiant changed its check-in system so passengers under age 14 will be seated next to at least one adult traveling on the same flight.
The move comes as the busy summer vacation travel season gets underway and as as airlines, including Allegiant, have increasingly begun charging fees for advanced seat assignments, even in coach class. Many airlines charge extra for reserving a "preferred" coach seat, such an aisle seat or one in a roomy exit row. And some, including Allegiant, charge for any advanced seat assignment.
The change won't guarantee an entire family will be seated together. But it will keep children from being separated entirely from a parent or guardian.
