1.Get Seat Smart
Book your flight as early as you can for the best seat choices. If you can afford it or have reward points, upgrading to business or first class may be worth the extra comfort. In coach, exit row seats have more legroom. But you need to be able to carry out emergency duties. Always aim for an aisle seat. You won’t have to climb over people, and it’s easier to stand and stretch or take a quick stroll.
2.Timing Is Everything
Avoid long lines at check-in and security, and travel during off-peak times. Midweek tends to be less busy. Check in online when you can. And get to the airport at least an extra hour earlier than recommended. On road trips, try to avoid rush hour and heavy holiday travel days so you don’t get stuck in traffic.
