When you make an airline reservation, a seat is assigned to you; you'll often have the option to choose your seat. Let's walk through airplane seat choices step by step.
Airplane seating choices are more varied than window or aisle. A window seat could be over a wing, for instance, but you won't necessarily know that until you're seated. A few things to consider when looking at your seat assignment:
- Where is my seat located? Am I at the front of the airplane? (Remember that streaking off the airplane before other passengers is really a negligible time-saver.)
Will I sit near the lavatory / emergency exit?
Does my seat have extra legroom?
Can I fully recline my seat?
Do I want to upgrade to first or business class? What are the differences in seats and services between first, business and coach class?
Can I plug in my laptop at my seat?
Will movies be shown? If so, can I plug in headphones at my seat and will my seat ticket pay for headphones? And hey - what *is* the movie, by the way?
