Airplane food is nothing like it was in days gone by, but it’s still something we (kinda sorta, sometimes) enjoy. Maybe it’s because it’s a welcome break while spending hours on the plane, or because it’s food you won’t find on land (and most of the time that’s probably a good thing), but whether it’s something from the snack cart or a full meal with real silverware in first class, it’s still something people generally look forward to, even when you know it’s usually not going to be very good. I guess that’s why the website that can tell you what will be served on your flight is so popular.

- You don’t have anywhere to rest your head to the side
- You don’t have easy aisle access
- You won’t get an armrest, not even one, if your seatmates are jerks about it (if that’s the case, I recommend this).
Yeah…pretty much, the only good thing middle seats have going for them is that you don’t have to pay extra for them (not even on Basic Economy!). And no wonder – NOBODY WANTS THEM!
But what if there was a situation where, no matter what, you could board a plane and know you will not get a middle seat? It can happen! Here’s how…
