Broadcasting the news is very serious business, but sometimes I guess news journalists just can’t help themselves. Case in point…
So I have this friend on Facebook – his name is Mark. And Mark recently posted a story about what happened to him on a plane not all that long ago. It was so funny that I just had to ask permission to repost it here. Fortunately, he said yes! 🙂
There’s a lot to be said about middle seats…
- 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…
Almost everyone has had to fly when they’re sick. It makes an uncomfortable situation even more miserable but you usually get through it OK.
However there are always questions about flying when you have a cold. Should you? Shouldn’t you? What can people do to not be miserable when flying with a cold? What if you’re flying while sick and have kids with you? Can you ask for a refund or reschedule until you feel better? Hopefully this post will help answer a lot of these questions.
In an effort to save money since the U.S. government had to bail out airlines post-9/11, said airlines have been doing their part to keep flights as full as possible. So it’s been pretty rare to to have an empty seat next to you on a plane, never mind getting a whole row to yourself. But here and there it does happen, especially on those rare flights that are only half-empty. Here’s how you can put the odds in your favor.
