Locate the nearest power outlet, find out if there is Internet access, and other amenities for hundreds of flights on SeatGuru.com.
The site is the one-stop location for travelers who want to get detailed information on each seat, including the varying legroom dimensions on each plane. Some seats have more space due to the way they are positioned on a particular plane. The site gives you a visual of the “good, be aware” and “poor seats”.
No matter where you sit, make sure to get up at least once an hour to reduce your blood clot risk. Since most airlines don’t offer power cords for your electronics, convert those headphone jacks to power outlets with an Inflight USB Power Unit.
This site rocks for long hauls. On Lufthansa earlier this year I found my seats were a few rows from the galleys/restroom, where people tend to mill about, chat and stretch.
I promptly moved them to a less populated location. I wonder if they have Singapore’s A380 up yet?
I was curious enough to check, and they do.
I so want my own sleeper cabin someday…
It looks really cool…just remember, no naughty naughty!
I regularly use Seatguru, but people are starting to cotton on and grab the best seats really early. The key is to try to check in online at the first available moment, and select your seat in conjunction with seatguru. It works a treat – economy class seats that have extra legroom are often more spacious than business class seats on short haul flights (with BA and many others for example).
@ Big Travel Web:
SeatGuru is and getting more popular everyday so best to jump on there during booking.
If that doesn’t work check for some secret seats – but as they become more widely known they won’t be as ‘secret’ either:
