Hate having an airplane seatmate? You have options

Hate having an airplane seatmate? You have options

AirAsia X passengers who want a coach row to themselves make the request through Optiontown.com. If the traveler can be accommodated, he or she is notified four to 72 hours before departure.

Imagine: You’ve boarded your flight and are comfortable in your seat when you get a good look at, or whiff of, your seatmate coming down the aisle toward you, and you wish you could have simply reserved the entire row to yourself. Sound familiar?

What a great idea, thanks to Harriet Baskas for sourcing out this information. It’s only a shame that more airlines don’t take AirAsia’s lead and offer the same.

I would imagine the main reason is that North American Airlines work on a different operational model and also a lot of their routes are short haul and therefore they have to get revenue for every seat to make the flight pay.
