This is a great idea, but in the U.K. it was bandied about as a tax on parents. I've just booked a RyanAir flight with my 3 yo son and this has guaranteed that we will sit together. It was 12.

Hypothetical situation: if you boarded and found your kid was sitting 3 rows away from you next to a person you didn't like the look of wouldn't you pay 12 to resolve it immediately without having to have a stressful argument with an FA and other pax?

Just pay the fee.
