Airline Gives Passengers Option To Pay For “Neighbor-Free Seating”

Eithad Airways just launched a new “neighbor-free seating” option in economy class that allows travelers to pay a little extra money to keep the seat next to them free, although it isn’t necessarily guaranteed. Interested customers place an online bid to keep anywhere from one to three seats next to them free, and depending on how full the flight is, they’ll be notified 32 hours before if their bid is accepted.

As for how much they’ll have to pay for that “neighbor-free seat,” the airline isn’t getting into specifics although they will offer a minimum and maximum bid for each flight.

What would YOU pay?
