Gadling's guide to getting better seats
Fear not, Gadlingers, there are ways to prevent pure misery in the skies, and I'm not talking about a bottle of Tylenol PM and 750mL of wine with dinner. A little homework and research beforehand and you'll well-reduce your chances of airborne distress.

We've broken down the process into a few basic steps. Since you're online reading this article right now we'll assume you know how to use the internet, so we'll show you a great web tool that you can use to help in your research.
