  • Ryanair To Make Parents Pay For Reserved Seats

    Ryanair has announced plans to make it mandatory for adults travelling with children under 12 to buy reserved seating. The low-cost carrier says the change, which will come into force from 1 September, is to prevent young families from being split up on busy planes and delaying departures. This was causing boarding issues as crews attempted to re-seat customers with young families, not least because Ryanair's flights this summer are said to be running at 94% capacity.

    By Andrew MacAskill and Lawrence White LONDON (Reuters) - Lloyds Banking Group is to step up its cost cutting plans to help to offset a more testing economic environment caused by Britain's vote to quit the European Union. Britain's largest retail bank aims to save 400 million pounds by end-2017 by axing a further 3,000 jobs and closing an additional 200 branches to protect its earnings and dividends against the effects of lower-for-longer interest rates. Lloyds, rescued in a 20.5 billion pound taxpayer bail-out during the financial crisis, is the first major British bank to report results since the referendum and is the most exposed to any downturn in the British economy.
