Favorite Travel Tip
When booking two airline seats on a long-haul flight make sure to grab the aisle and window seat leaving the middle seat empty. Take two seats as far back as possible because the airlines will fill those middle seats from front to back. Often no one will get the empty middle seat and in the case they do are always happy to change for a window or aisle seat.
