Choosing Your Seat on A Plane
When traveling, you have the opportunity to choose your seat on a plane. It is a luxury you should always take advantage of. Choosing your seat on a plane can be a pain, especially if you don’t know which airline rules require it. There are so many things to consider when deciding where to sit on a plane. These days, passengers are so high maintenance that not only do you want to make sure you get the right seat, you want to make sure that the seat is comfortable and in a position that will allow you to get up and take a walk around the cabin.
So, here are some tips on choosing your seat on a plane:
- Make use of SeatGuru
You can choose your seat online – wait until that last minute before your flight and book your spot for a long flight. Or, you can wait until you arrive at the airport and decide on which seat you want. Before you go, if you aren’t sure what seat you want to sit in, check with the airline to see which seats are empty. If you have time to check-in online, there are ways to check for empty seats – such as SeatGuru.com, or check out Seat Map.com.
Whether you’re flying economy, business class, or first class, there are a few things you should consider before booking your seat. SeatGuru can help you find the best airline seat (and aisle, if you’re a traveler who likes privacy) for you. With SeatGuru, you can choose:
– Which seat to sit in
– Which side to sit on
– Which seat to select (if any)
– What other passengers are like you (in terms of seat selection)
- Settle where you want to sit, preferably your favorite spot
Have you decided where you want to sit on a flight? If not, it’s not too late! The trick is to sit where you want to sit, preferably in your favorite spot. This can be as simple as pulling a few strings. If you are traveling with a partner, check with them first to see if they want to sit together or if they might want to switch seats. If you are traveling alone, try to get a window seat. Window seats are the most comfortable since they give you the most room to stretch. You can also ask the flight attendant for the exit row, which is the last row in the plane. The exit row is the only row that has extra legroom.
- Arrive early at the airport
Arrive early at the airport, so that you can choose a comfier seat, with fewer people around you. Look for the least crowded two seats in the row in front of you, and if you need to, stand in line to get the best seat in business class.
- Be friendly at check-in
You may know that your seat on a plane will be pre-assigned to you. But do you know the person sitting next to you? Indeed, you don’t have to know them, but you do have to be friendly. Your flight is about to start, so do something nice for your neighbor: offer to hold their overhead bag, or secretly offer a mint from a bag in your jacket. Just make it clear that you’re doing it voluntarily.
- Choose an airline that blocks middle seats
Middle seats can be a pain. They’re usually in the middle of the cabin, and they’re usually in the middle of the aisle, so you have to walk through other people’s business to get to them. They’re also usually the seats that get the worst amount of legroom. All this can take away from the experience of flying. However, not all airlines have the same policies on middle seats, so you have to pay careful attention to the airline you’re flying with when it comes to the middle seats.
- Do not hesitate to ask
Do not hesitate to ask for help. Many people are willing to help you if you have a problem or simply want to learn more about a particular subject. But first, you have to ask.
The first and most important is that, as with all journeys, you should always buy the right ticket. You don’t want to be sitting in a seat that’s too narrow or that’s in the back row. You also want to make sure that you get a window seat or the front row at the very least and that you’re not seated next to two other passengers.
