Give me the rundown here, because I simply don't get it. What is the real benefit? You have to get up for every person with a small bladder, and have to ask people to get up for you.
However, some people elect to take these seats ahead of time. Why?
studies show that if I pick the middle seat next to 2 empty seats that 1 of those seats will remain empty.
I have done this routinely with much success if the flight is less than 50% booked when I pick seats and flying solo.
However I don't do this if the flight is already 75-80% booked and will eventually fill.
Better than sitting next to Nucky???

It certainly isn't a couple who would like to sit together.
I have seen two travellers (whether a couple or not) literally FREAK out because they couldn't get 2 seats next to each other and nobody would switch seats.
I would slap a lady if she felt this entitled.
I saw two people freak out about not having seats next to each other on a flight recently, then one of them discovered he wasn't even on the right flight and grabbed his bag and ran off the plane. The weird thing is, the other half of the couple stayed on the plane until someone came to sit in her seat, and then she appeared surprised to discover she wasn't on the right flight either.
It was really weird. I was pretty glad they weren't on our flight.
Why don't they book them together. I've always wondered that.
Does anyone else pick two aisle seats across from each other when flying in pairs?
2 months for a Nucky handle. Impressive.

@ ClankyIronBoots Sometimes the wife and I do this if it gets us closer to the front of the plane, especially if we have a close connection. Really depends on the circumstances.
@Snake - The wife and I often travel on separate PNRs when we are traveling together on business (yes - we work together quite a bit). Makes the whole reimbursement game much easier.
Its really not that hard to get seats. I swear, I log onto Delta.com every other day and check all of my flights and change to better seats if they are available.
What had surprised me a lot within the last two weeks is that flights appear to be PACKED from booking until check in. Suddenly when you check in (keep in mind this is still 24 hours before the flight) there are tons of available seats. They can't possibly know that a ton of people are going to miss that flight..
Also, airline prices are going through the roof!! I had a meeting in southen Iowa tomorrow. Cheapest flight was $900 and it didn't get me back in time for the Minnesota game, so I decided to drive. As I was crossing into Iowa today, the customer called to cancel the meeting.
It makes the HJs a little more awkward during meal service but otherwise a good strategy.
