For Extra Seat Space On An Airplane, This Is The Best Place To Sit
By Nicole Cord-Cruz


Securing a good seat on a plane can be a hassle if you don't want to splurge on a more expensive seat. If you want more space, choose a seat at the back of the plane.
The seats get a bad rap because they are near the bathroom and you'll be the last to disembark. However, fewer people get in your way and you have the freedom to move.
Since these seats are less popular, you're more likely to end up with an empty seat next to you, which means even more personal space to enjoy the entire flight.
A less popular option is booking a bulkhead seat because there's no space for your belongings, but there's legroom. The row is usually shared with infants, but you can avoid that.
You can also buy the seat next to you if your budget allows. Some airlines offer the service at discounts, while others charge full price, but it's something to look into.
