Travel Tip #49 – Choose Wisely!
With the vast majority of travelers flying in economy, it is the little things that can really make a difference on a flight. Some want more leg room, some just want peace and quiet and some simply want smooth sailing. As noted above, the smoothest flight can be found when sitting close to a wing as the engines provide stability. The most quiet journey can be found as far front in economy as you can sit, as it is furthest from the engines, and the most leg room is of course in the exit rows. These seats have their pros and cons, as the added legroom comes with the added inability to recline your seat, but for a big guy like myself, having no bruised knee caps when I land somewhere is always an added bonus.
