Etymology 1[edit]

un- +‎ reserved


unreserved (not comparable)

  1. (of a person) Not reserved, without reservations.
  2. Not booked in advance.
    • 2020 July 15, Barry Doe, “Problems persist with Advance on the day”, in Rail, page 65:
      It cannot be right that someone who joins a train at 0800, having paid perhaps £200 for a single at the ticket office and who sits in an unreserved seat, can be removed from that seat at 1200 by someone who joins en route with a cheap Advance fare that he didn't even buy until 1100, and yet which came with a compulsory reservation. That turns our first passenger's seat from unreserved to reserved midway through the journey and is, to me, commercially immoral.
