How to Pick a Great Airline Seat. Don't get stuck in a middle seat near a bathroom on your next flight.
With a little time and effort, you can be sitting pretty. You will need Priorities
A website with airplane seating diagrams and an early booking. Optional: a seat upgrade membership.
Step 1. There is no single "best seat" on an airplane — all have their pros and cons
— so decide what's important to you. Legroom? Peace and quiet? A quick exit? A smooth ride?
Step 2. Don't assume anything about a seat without checking it out. Some bulkhead seats
_don't_ offer extra legroom, some "window" seats are _between_ windows and therefore
offer little view, and many exit seats, while providing more legroom, are narrower than other seats.
Find out what kind of plane you'll be on and then visit "seatexpert.com":http://
or "seatguru.com":http://. Click on any seat to see its pros and cons. Step 3. Pay a small fee
to ensure you get a seat with the most legroom. Many airlines now identify their
best seats on their websites and charge for them accordingly. Step 4. Take reclining into
account. If you like to sit back, avoid the last rows in any section. If you hate people
leaning into your lap, try to snare an exit seat; the seats in front of those rows usually
don't recline. Exit row seats are often not assigned until check-in. To snag one, get
to the airport early. Step 5. Consider the pitch of the seat, which is the distance between
your seat and the one in front of you. You'll find this information on airline seat websites.
Step 6. Take turbulence into account. If you're a white-knuckle flyer, sit over the front
of the wing; that's where you're least likely to feel turbulence. Avoid the back,
where you'll feel every bump. Step 7. If you need peace and quiet, avoid sitting in the back,
where the engines are the loudest. And steer clear of the bulkhead,
where families with babies are usually seated. Step 8. When you buy your ticket,
be sure to book your specific seat, either online or by calling the airline directly.
Increase your odds of sitting beside an empty middle seat by requesting a back row where either the aisle or window seat is already booked.
The middle seats in back rows fill up last. Step 9. Check back 24 hours
before your flight; this is when prime seating often is released. Plus, airlines occasionally switch planes,
possibly turning your chosen seat into an undesirable one!
Step 10. If you're a frequent flyer, consider joining an airline program that guarantees a good
seat for an annual fee. Did you know The average airline seat in coach is just 17.2 inches wide.
