Get an empty seat next to you – Airplane tip

Here’s your best shot at getting that coveted empty seat.

  1. Book a seat close to the back of the plane. Most airlines and bookers fill the seats at the front of the plane first, leaving more empty space in the back.
  2. Don’t choose the last row, though, as often times these seats don’t recline.
  3. Don’t choose an exit row seat (these tend to fill up) or a row of three that’s completely empty (lots of people travel in pairs).
  4. Finally, make sure to re-checkin at the airport kiosk to see if any more desirable spaces have opened up.

Have fun spreading out!
