In another thread, the subject of flying came up.
How many of you out there willingly purchase 2 tickets for yourself when flying, or, if not willingly, are forced to buy 2 seats?
How Do you feel about it?
Here is what I wrote in a the other thread:
"After flying as much as I have the last two years, I no longer have any issues with buying two seats (I have to on any airline).
The only drawback has been price. However, you get to bring twice the carry-on luggage (panniers fit nicely into overhead compartments) and have LOTS more room.
When I see regular sized people jammed together, having to fight for personal space...I have less issues with the price of two seats.
I have had instances of airlines thinking I'd made a mistake in reservations and issuing me only one seat (all handled with sensitivity and tact).
The funniest was when a flight was canceled and I was sent to another airline where I was, indeed, issued two seats.........each in different rows!"
