Seat selection

Settle yourself by the window and watch the passing scenic landscapes, choose a place with ample space between the rows for a lengthy flight, or sit next to your whole family and discuss the upcoming voyage.

If you are a frequent flyer, you will probably choose your accustomed seat without much thinking. However, if you are a beginning traveler, it would be useful to learn about some of the features before booking.

Standard seat
