Middle Seats Suck...

Don't you just hate it when you check in for a flight at tha last minute and are assigned a middle seat, instead of a window seat?

I wouldn't know. I always check in well in advance to get an aisle seat...

Those who check in late deserve no more than they get for causing unneeded delays.
I wish I were flying

When I flew to London I was on a DC-10 (2-5-2). And of course my seat was 28E or something. Its the seat right in the middle. Everyone around me was sleeping when I felt like I had to barf, but the british man who had the isle seat let me take his seat in case I had to make another mad dash to the Lav.! Embarrassment

My sister and I are flying to Rome in December. CO 777 is the A/C supposedly flying us there. 3-3-3 seating. My sister and I purchased a window seat and an isle seat (hopefully CO won't put anyone between us!).

But I agree. Sitting in the middle does suck.  Smile

On a transatlantic flight, they are nice. My brother, sis, and father and I took the whole middle row up in the A340, it was better there, you can view the movie better, and it's not so cold.

You have to be on crack to like a 2x5x2! I flew a NWA DC-10-30 JFK-AMS-DEL in the middle seat and back. Hell oneath and needless to say that will be my last NWA flight til they get the A330s.
