I'm taking an AWESOME trip to Europe and will be flying with US Airways.
Does anyone know if i can request that the seat beside me be empty so that i can stretch out during the flight? I'm worried about my legs and not moving for that amount of time in a cramped environment. I'd upgrade to first class... but its a bit too steep for my travel budget.
Airlines are getting pretty picky with respect to seats. I just read in our local newspaper that there are a couple of airlines that are considering charging heavy/wide people that won't easily fit into the dimensions of a single seat for an extra seat. However, instead of asking for an empty seat next to you (which could be a problem especially if the flight is full) you can try something else. I have a family member that also has problems with long flights. They always request an aisle seat so that they can get up and walk a little from time to time to stretch their legs. This might be a more workable solution for you.
