7 tips for picking the perfect airplane seat every time

Book Early: Try to book your flight as early as possible. Airlines often release seat assignments when flights open for booking

Use Seat Maps: Most airlines provide seat maps during the booking process. Use these maps to see the available seats

Consider Your Needs: Think about what's most important to you during the flight. Do you want extra legroom, a window to gaze out of

Avoid High-Traffic Areas: Seats near the galley, restrooms, or where the flight attendants congregate may have more noise and foot traffic.

Check SeatGuru: Websites like SeatGuru provide detailed information about airline seat configurations

Pay Attention to Exit Rows: Exit row seats typically offer extra legroom, making them a favorite choice for many travelers.

Understand Recline and Space: Check how much your seat reclines and how much space you have between rows.

Consider the Time of Day: If you're on a long-haul flight and plan to sleep, a window seat can provide a better surface to lean against.
