I have just booked EXT-GCI-JER with BE (#311) on the 2nd November on the DH4.
The total cost, including tax and a £1 card fee, was £32.98. I won't be taking a bag over 10 K.G., so I won't have to pay £2.50 (or £5 at the airport).
BE offers you the option of reserving your seat, so it's for peace-of-mind, particularly if travelling with a family, for £5 each way - or, for more comfort, an extra legroom seat for £15 one-way. Have you taken advantage of either option? If so, did you think it was worth it? Do you have any idea how much revenue is generated by this method?

Have never taken advantage of the reserved seating charges with BE. In my experience, if you turn up at check-in 1.5 hours before the flight then you can always get a window seat for free without a problem. No need for the extra expense.
The legroom on the DH4's for BE seems quite generous, so no need worry about bagging an extra legroom exit seat, such as for a short EXT-Channel Islands flight, except for people well over 6ft tall.

It's actually so short that the runways in use influence the time taken, in that if you take off from 09 at GCI and land on 09 at GCI, it's far more direct, but it's really only 2-3 minutes in the difference. The flight level is dependant on traffic; the Aurigny Trislanders usually operate at 1,000'. It's quite a nice crossing on a good day.
