Some folks have the luxury of flying first class, but majority of vacationers decide to fly economy.
Despite its inherent drawbacks, flying coach is worth thinking about if you want to lower your expenses.
To help you determine whether flying economy is a good option for you, keep reading.

Benefits of Flying Economy
The most significant benefit to flying coach is that it is cheaper. The cost benefits are even more
noticeable if you're flying to an international destination. The money you save from flying coach can be
spent on more worthwhile holiday activities, to book a better room, or to prolong your stay. Another
benefit would be improved availability. There are only twenty to thirty first class seats on any flight and
these are often filled up rather quickly. If you will fly economy, you will have more seat options and if it
is important to you, there is also a better chance that you can sit next to your buddies when you fly
economy because there are considerably more seats. The majority of airlines now have economy seats
that have personal TV screens to keep you pre-occupied during extended flights.

Cons of Flying Economy
If you are on the tall or heavy side, seats in the economy section may be uncomfortable. Legroom is
usually limited, making your knees touch the seat in front of you. This even becomes more problematic if
you want to take a nap on long journeys because the seats can only recline a few inches. Those who have
personal space issues may find it disturbing to be pressed against the next passenger's shoulder. While
many airlines no longer offer free food on economy flights, there are still several that do.

Other options to flying in the economy section
If you don't like to fly economy, but also don't wish to pay the exorbitant cost of first class seats, there
are other strategies to save on your trip. A number of airlines offer premium economy and business class
discounted options which have bigger seats and roomy leg rooms compared to the former. These seats are
priced between what you'd expect to pay for economy and first class seats. You may also lower your
expenses if you flug buchen at least fourteen days in advance and staying away from peak seasons. If
your itinerary is changeable, you can also get last minute deals from airlines that were not able to fill their
planes. You can find out more about cheap last minute fluge deals here.
