You can certainly argue for some, both objective and subjective. for exiting in an emergency, aside from sitting in the exit row, aisle seats > middle seats > window seats for ease to escape for exiting the plane, it's faster than a window seat in the same row if you want to be 'that guy', on airlines like RyanAir where it's sit where you want seating, ...

You have the moral advantage when fighting for the armrest. The person on the aisle or window has at least one uncontested armrest already. There's a slightly higher chance that the seat in front of you and/or behind you will be unoccupied. If in front, you don't have to worry about them putting their chair back. If behind, then you don't have to worry ...

The only advantage I can think of is the opportunity to have two neighbors to talk to. This can also be a disadvantage if you're particularly anti-social, or you end up with bad neighbors. Which I guess goes to show why this question really is "Primarily Opinion Based."

Hopefully these will help you. Flying is by far the safest way to get around, so you should try to calm yourself and enjoy the experience! Airbus A320: Wifi - yes, above 10,000 ft. Power socket - No. CRJ 700: WiFi - No Power socket - No Q400: WiFi - No Power socket - No 737-900: WiFi - No Power socket - Yes (but its shared) For cell phones, ...

Your first three questions are extremely opinion oriented and we all have difference values when it comes to comfort, how flights are, how helpful people are. And all of these can change from day to day, plane to plane, airport to airport. Is there wifi, yes for the A320, likely but not 100% of all 737-900, nope for the other two. Can you use laptop, yes. ...

You're in luck. Last time I flew from Alicante the airline had forgotten to schedule one (yes, they really had failed to plan for an aircraft to be there for the trip) and aircraft and had to rent one from another company in order to get us from there to Amsterdam. Result was a 6 hour delay while an aircraft was sought and found from a wet lease agent in ...

The reason I asked about how many jetways were used is because there is an exit right by where we're sitting in the back of the plane. If they used that I would get off rather quickly The jetbridge does not stretch all the way to the back of the airplane (irrespective of the type of aircraft) it has very limited movement. If you were to be deplaned ...

Is it possible? Yes it is, in most planes a pointed object (a pen or so) to be inserted in the small manual release opening in the oxygen mask compartment will release that specific mask. Are they released manually for sick passengers? No they are not, the seat oxygen masks are not meant for medical reasons, only for emergency reasons, namely ...

Yes, airlines can and do change the aircraft to be used for a particular flight (often referred to as an 'equipment change') for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to: The scheduled plane is down for maintenance. The scheduled plane is delayed in arriving from another airport. Some need came up for the scheduled aircraft to be used for ...

Yes, you purchased transit by air, not a particular style of it. Actually, depending on whether it is an IANA governed flight or not, you may have purchased a specific weight and volume of transit space to utilize, and not actually the guarantee of personal transit. (Which is how airlines can refuse boarding to over-large passengers or require they purchase ...

It's true that you can often see details of the aircraft on the website now, so you could have some expectations or think you have a contractual agreement to be flown on that aircraft. But in practice, airlines merely promise a best effort to bring you somewhere and can and do do a lot of things (switch airplanes, reschedule, cancel a flight outright, change ...

Airlines have the right to change aircraft as they see fit. It is a quite common occurrence. Sometimes because of mechanical issues, sometimes because the passenger load would be better handled by a different aircraft, sometimes because they need to aircraft originally assigned somewhere else, etc etc. While this time you got an older aircraft, it is just ...

In general the age you are when you fly is what counts AND that is both directions. As an example, if you are looking at a youth rate, the airline will look at your age on both legs and the fare will be based on the higher rate. ie if you fly out under a youth rate, but have a birthday and return as an "adult", then the entire airfare will be based on ...

I suspect that your age on the date of departure is the significant factor. If your birthday is in the middle of the trip, it might be possible to purchase a ticket where the outbound leg is booked under your current age and the return leg is booked under your new age. If that is not possible then the entire ticket will probably booked based on your age at ...

Massively was around the date of the movie I would be guessing, but it does help the fact that the tourism departments of the area DO have a whole paragraph talking about it as an attraction... One full paragraph out of 4 for the entire beach so yeah, I would say they pushed for mass tourism on that plane...
