I’ve been so busy this week that I didn’t even think about the fact that yesterday was Tuesday! So I’m one day late for Travel Tip Tuesday this week.
Whenever I’m booking a flight, particularly a long one like to Vegas or a trans-Atlantic, I like to look up a seat map for the plane I’ll be on before selecting my seat. SeatGuru makes this a breeze. It tells you where in-seat power port locations are so you can snag one of those seats if you plan to bring along your laptop or other electronic that you want to plug in. It also tells you which seats have limited (or NO!) recline, reduced legroom, increased legroom, and no storage space for takeoff and landing. Whenever I’ve remembered to use it, I’ve been grateful. Whenever I forget to check and end up in a seat that won’t recline, I curse myself for forgetting! It’s a great resource – one you should use when booking your next flight (assuming you get to choose your seat!).
