Most of us are very successful in making travel arrangements and are able to find cheap flights to one or another city. You might be finding a lot of tips on how to find cheap airfare to Europe, Asia, Australia or other continent, but do you really know how to book the best seats on a plane?

Here are several tips that will help you land great seats and not to get bumped off the flight.

PREASSIGN your seats. Whenever you purchase the flight tickets through an agent or a travel website, you can always book the seats on a plane at the same time or right after you purchased the tickets. Often you may view the seat map (aircraft configuration) with available and occupied seats and choose whichever seats you prefer. If you buy flight tickets last minute, you may not be able to reserve seats in advance or there might not be any 2 or 3 seats together left. Don’t panic, there is always a number of seats blocked for check in only. If you arrive to the airport early, there is a great chance you will be able to get the seats you like. In any case, if there is limited number of seats available in advance, take and reserve the best from the worst. This will ensure your place onboard and not to be bumped off the flight in case the flight is overbooked. You may find more information about flight overbooking here

ARRIVE EARLY to the airport. If you did not get the preferred seats at the time of ticket purchase, this is your chance to land good seats. If you got cheap airfare to Europe, you will be onboard for at least 8 or more hours. Therefore, you may want to be sitting further from the restrooms and noise and probably together with your party if not traveling alone. Consult with airlines when the check in starts and arrive that early to the airport.

KNOW your seat preferences. If you do not know how to book seats on a plane, you may always contact the airline or go to their website. They usually have a possibility for you to open the reservation and reserve seats or add frequent flyer numbers, etc. Before you do so, make sure you know where you want to sit. So check the aircraft configuration and try to avoid seats close to lavatory and galley. These areas area usually more crowded, noisy and sometimes smelly. Also, make sure your seats can recline. Depending on an aircraft, the last row does not always recline. So even when you find cheap flight, you always need to make sure that you’re not miserable on board, and have as pleasant journey as possible.
