Two good websites for travel

With summer vacations coming just around the corner for a lot of you, I thought I would share with you two really cool sites that I really enjoy and can help you in your travel plans.

SeatGuru is a great site where you can find which seats you want to sit in or avoid. For instance, did you know that if you booked a flight on American Airlines Boeing 767-300, all the seats in row 13 are reported to feel a little cramped and don't have a full recline? And, the row has misaligned windows so you need to lean to look out. And the space under the B E AND H seats are slightly limited because there have equipment boxes under the seats! And if you fly on the Continental Boeing 737-500, wouldn't you like to know that 14A or 14F seats have a lot of extra leg room but the tray table is in the armrest, so the seat is slightly smaller. Your floor storage is under seats 10A and 10F and it can get cold sitting there in your seat. But if you're tall and thin and hot-blooded, this should be the perfect seat for you.

The other site that's good for your travels is Farecast. This is a site which will let you know the lowest fares and how many seats are available at that price. Also, if it's a good idea to buy the ticket now or wait as the price will be dropping.

Happy Travels!

Hi Shawn, I'm still alive and kicking. I finish work on 31 May and will have more time to communicate. So sorry to take so long to get back to you. I love reading your doodle thoughts. xx Pauline

Oh, wow. This is so cool. With all of the times I've flown I really didn't know that different rows could have different seating situations. This is something I would very much like to know in advance.
Good find.
