Seat Guru for better airline seat selection

Several singers and fans from Chicago are planning to join French singers in a conference called Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion in Paris on Sept 15, 16 and 17. http://www.chicagopariscabaretconnexion.org/program_join.php

While making travel arrangements, I ran across a very informative site, sponsored by Trip Advisor, called Seat Guru that details where seats are located on your selected flight.

You need merely note what type of plane your airline is using for your flight and then access a map of that particular plane to better inform you in your seat selection.

As a general rule, it is wise to avoid seats near lavatories and galleys due to congestion and, ahem, aromas. Likewise, what you gain in leg room by taking a seat behind a section wall, you will lose in no under seat storage in front of you. As you may have discovered, overhead bin storage can be filled if you board the plane after the initial onslaught of passengers.

The row in front of emergency exit seats should be avoided since their ability to recline may be limited or nil. Some people hate middle seats due to dickering with your aisle and window seat companions over arm rest rights, but I like the extra room under the seat in front of you.

Happy flying! Or at least have a bearable flight.
Liquor and chocolate may help.
