Mind My Personal Space!
17B. When you’re flying standby on a full flight, you’re happy to be assigned any seat, middle seat included. But if you’re in a middle seat, an exit row isn’t a bad way to go. I arrived at the Philadelphia airport at 5:45 am for a 7:10 am flight. Because I’d been up late partying […]
