Go Air, Spice join unbundled pricing bandwagon

Mumbai: Go Air on Monday joined other low-cost airline in a la carte pricing as it introduced a fee for pre-selection of seats on board all its flights and for extra check-in baggage over 20 kg.
The limit is five kg more than the maximum free baggage allowed by Jet Airways, IndiGo and Air India.
Apart from Go Air, Spice Jet also has a 20 kg limit on free check-in baggage. Air India does not charge for seat selection but Jet Airways has a seat selection charge for certain seats on board all its international flights operated by Boeing 737 aircraft.
Go Air will charge Rs 200 each for window and aisle seat, while seats in row 3, 12 and 13 that come with extra leg room will cost Rs 500, said a statement sent to travel agents on Monday. The seat preference pricing is the same as that adopted by IndiGo.
