The next time you fly, do not go up to the automated-check-in kiosk unawares; thankfully, seatguru.com is here, teaching us that not all aisle seats are created equal. Simply find out what kind of plane youll be flying in (usually in your confirmation e-mail from sites like Expedia.com), then consult the sites exhaustive catalogue of aircraft schematics, indicating each seats width and legroom measurements down to a tenth of an inch, the location of power outlets, the proximity of each seat to the galley or lavatory and much, much more. Roll your mouse over each seat to see what people who have actually flown in it have to report.
File this among the Webs most ingeniously useful sites. I dont even fly that much, and I still cant get enough. But then again, Ive been known to spend hours on airlinemeals.net. —John Mahoney
