The Kathy Healey Commentaries

When you are ready to plan a trip for vacation, work or family issue how do you get your flight? Do you go to Costco, Trip Advisor, Kayak or straight away to the airline website. Is the key to your trip the comfort on the plane. Are you willing to pay for the bulkhead at the front of coach or do you go straight for the extra charges in business select or first class. Of course, Southwest Airlines gives you your number in line but not a seat. It is the only airline with open seating. The middle seat has an armrest and who manages to use it during the flight. Sometimes the armrest is pushed between the seats especially if it is parent and child. My podcast gives attention to the struggle for the armrest when you are stuck in the middle seat.
