1) Do Some Recon Before You Book
As you click through the online booking process, you will come to the seat plan screen and have the option to choose your seat. It’s good to gloss over this page for a few reasons. One, some airlines charge extra for pre-flight seat selection when it’s just as easy to be assigned at check-in. Two, if there is no extra fee you can scan for an aisle seat nearest to the front of the plane, not paying much attention to anything else. Now, realize this is a golden opportunity to sneak a peek at the popularity of the flight. If the seat plan has only a few available seats left, it’s a good indication that the flight will be full. This increases your chances of getting bumped. Before you book, check the seat plans of several flights, and select the busiest one.
