Picking a seat on your flight

Date Posted:24 August 2016 

You generally have two choices: window or aisle seat. Which one should you choose? Keep these things in mind when booking your next flight:

  • Window seats offer a view and a wall to lean on while you sleep, but you'll have more trouble getting access to the lavatory, or even just getting up to stretch around during your flight.
  • Aisle seats let you stand and stretch your legs at your leisure. A neck pillow will help you get some rest without leaning on your neighbour.
  • Avoid seats near the lavatory, which can be bothersome: the flushing is loud and the area gets crowded when passengers line up.
  • Check seatguru.com, which provides details on the pros and cons of each seat on your particular aircraft.
