If you have medical needs (e.g. oxygen, wheelchair etc.), please contact our special assistance department for help with your seat assignment.
We’ll endeavour to honour advance seating requests, however, we can’t guarantee any particular seat. We reserve the right to assign or reassign seats at any time, even after boarding of the aircraft. This may be necessary for operational, safety or security reasons.
Seat fees are non-refundable. In the event that a seat fee is paid and the seat purchased or an equivalent seat (sold at the same price) isn’t available, you may claim a full refund of the seating fee.

Seatbelt extensions are available on all our aircraft, except Boeing 767 services between Shannon and Boston. They can’t be pre-booked but if you need one, just let a member of cabin crew know when you’re boarding.

Passengers requiring a seatbelt extension unfortunately won’t be able to sit at an exit row.
