Everything You Need to Know About Seat Selection Part 1

Episode 23 ·



Andrew starts by talking about border preclearance and the world’s longest flights. The main segment for this episode is the first part of a two-part series on seat selection.

  • What is border preclearance? These arrangements between countries allow passengers to clear border processes before departure on an international flight. Learn about the implications and benefits for travelers.

  • Would you spend almost 19 hours on a plane? There are some really long flights out there and we cover some of them in this episode. Plus, find about the world record for the longest flight ever (hint: it was more than two months long!)

  • Where you sit on a plane can have a big impact on your air travel experience. Whether you are looking to avoid the middle seat, sit with your travel companion, or save money, there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to seat selection. In the first part of a two-part series on seat selection, Andrew talks about whether you should pay for seat selection, how you can save on fees, how seat type can be a consideration when booking flights and more.
