NEW DELHI: Making the long overseas journey in the cramped economy class a little less painful by opting for a seat with extra legroom is going to cost a lot this summer. Several foreign airlines are giving budget flyers the options of pre-booking extra legroom seats for anywhere up to Rs 5,500 on their flights, including to and from India.
Or else, the flyer can take whatever seats are left unbooked a few hours before departure time or while checking-in at the airport. “Some international airlines have recently started levying these steep fees on India flights too,” said Anil Kalsi, a leading Delhi-based travel agent.
For instance, Lufthansa offers its economy class passengers the option to book seats with extra legroom on the popular Delhi-Frankfurt sector for up to Rs 5,500.`Standard’ seats (with regular legroom) can be booked for Rs 1,950 apiece if a family wants to ensure they travel seated next to each other.
