Did you know that you can request a seat in advance, if you have a preference, while booking your flight? Not every airline permits this, for a majory of reasons, usually security, but when you can, why not pick your seat in advance?

Want window? Aisle? Front, middle, or back of the plane? If you want a business or first class ticket, well, that’s a different matter, but you can feel like you are first class when it comes to choosing the seat you sit in.

I just wish I could choose who I sit next to.

Many online air flight booking services offer seat maps to help you choose your seat, and here are some other seat map references and resources to help you pick your airplane seat.
