You’ll really enjoy our new slimline seats. Customers have told us that they felt our economy seats had far too much padding, and they just didn’t know what to do with all that extra space between their knees and the seat in front of them, so listening to customer feedback, we’ve enhanced our economy cabin to make it feel like a video game where you torture people, only we’ve also taken away your seat back televisions, so no video games after all. Yeah. Amazingly, a few airlines haven’t yet decided to “enhance” their economy cabin, so if you’re looking for the very best legroom, seat power and comfort, you’ll do well to choose these airlines and planes…

First, A Tip For Finding Out What Plane You’re On…

You can plug any flight number into the website FlightAware.com. Not only is it an amazing resource for tracking flights, seeing historical on time data and other things, you can also see what plane operates the route. All this information should be in your booking, when you make it with the airline or online travel agency, but this is a fun resource to check. SeatGuru is great as well. If you really want to go pro, you can set free alerts for when and if the seat you want becomes available in your cabin using ExpertFlyer as well.
