Seat Stories

About 9 years ago I flew with my mom, step dad and brother from London Heathrow to Hamburg, Germany to visit family for my grandma’s 70th birthday. Obviously a pretty big deal, and back then planes didn’t bother me in the least. I was even thinking of going into the airline industry either to work […]

Earlier this year I was flying from LAX to Amsterdam non stop. I had a window seat which is what I prefer. I knew the flight was not full so there would be open seats available. I have priority boarding so I was able to board first and get settled in.

I was flying Southwest, where there are no reserved seats. There was a group of three adult women who were all friends. Note that they were not disabled or with special needs, just friends flying to the same destination together. In addition, this was a full flight (143 seats, 143 passengers).

So I was flying Southwest Airlines to Boston from Phoenix.  I couldn’t sleep the night before, so I looked forward to a pillow and being curled up against a window. I got my “A” boarding pass (lucky) and sat in my window seat.

I have been an American Airlines frequent flyer for many, many years. I don’t fly the airline nearly as much now that we have moved to Hilton Head Island, since connections from Savannah are generally not as good as they are for other airlines to the destinations we fly to.

This is about the only time I ever flew Saudi Arabian Airlines which was in December 2013. Due to the holiday season, I had no option but to fly with them. Afterwards I decided never to fly with them in the future. The overall attitude of Saudia staff was bossy.

I’m was on a school trip in China. We were using all sorts of transport, but for this leg we flew. Despite the fact that I was only sixteen and female, I was the tallest person in the group by a fair bit (I’m 5’7″).

I was recently on a flight from Hong Kong – Dubai – Sao Paulo on Emirates Airline. Oh how wrong I was when I thought that my last flight to Sao Paulo was going to be peaceful.

Several Seat Stories

in Seat Stories

I fly about once a year so I am not a frequent flier, but I have experienced many of the same bad experiences. Seat reclining really should be limited.
