Pick the best seat

I’m obsessed with airline seating. Not that I enjoy arranging people. I enjoy selecting my seats via the online system. The thrill is to secure a seat with an empty one next to you.

For those who are secretly like me, have fun checking out the good, bad, and ugly ones. Only drawback of the site – does not tell you when you will find yourself sitting next to someone who, at 39,000ft, will decide that she absolutely has to make a phone call via her motorola razor. And when she fails to connect, she proceeds with text messaging.

Do you know the wing area is the strongest, hence making it safest to be at, but it is also where the fuel is stored? Irony rules.
