Air travel is becoming more of a chore and with the summer travel season upon us it is nice to know you can still find out about the better seats on the aircraft for free using Seatguru , the Linking the Week site for this final day of June.
I have been using Seatguru almost since its inception in 2001. Traveling many thousands of miles a year for work in my previous career, I used it as a tool when selecting seats and avoided those window seats which may not have a view outside the aircraft. Seatguru will also indicate the rows which do not recline, if you will get a little more legroom on an aircraft by selecting a specific seat as well as many other items which seem small but help with air travel. With some airlines, these seats do remain free to select but some of the larger airlines do charge a nominal fee as well for selecting a little better seat.
Seatguru covers the main airlines in the United States, including my current preferred carrier Frontier Airlines , and more many airlines throughout the world.
