This may have been discussed in the past, but I've never seen it here. 10 days ago I bought a ticket on Delta.com for a round trip from Charleston, SC
) to Portland, OR
). At the time I bought my tickets, I went to the "seat selection" screen and picked my seats. For the entire itinerary of CHS
there was one window seat available, which was on the ATL
flight. The other four didn't have any window seats available. I always try for a window seat...after all, whats the point of travelling at 600 mph in a narrow pressurized tube 6 miles above the earth if you can't look out the window? Anyway, I was disappointed in the lack of window seats available. So, today, just for the heck of it, I went to Delta.com and checked. I was very surprised to find available window seats on all 5 legs of my trip! Is this because people cancelled? or is it because Delta made the seats available last minute? For all you people like me who want the window, but don't get one, I highly recommend checking with the airline a day or 2 before your flight...it worked for me.
