As many flyers know, the prospect of long-distance holiday commercial flight can be unattractive. As Stephanie Earls of the Colorado Springs Gazette relates, the fear of the "dreaded middle seat" gives many pause when it comes to making their travel plans. However, it can be many travelers' only option if their destination is too far for a road trip or a ride on the train.
Not surprisingly, "the end-of-year stretch still is typically the busiest for airlines." This of course leads to crowded planes and little room for you to work with on your trip. The increase in air traffic during the holidays can also lead to delays: According to Earls, nearly one third of domestic flights from mid-December to early January depart or arrive fifteen minutes late. Needless to say, the thought of a late, 6-hour flight cramped between two other people can make one rethink their decision to go the route of air travel.
