Savvy Tip

Our new favorite Web site is a free service that explains exactly which seats to book and which to avoid on 23 airlines. It shows seat maps according to plane, detailing not only pitch and legroom but also the location of bulkheads and exit rows. Seatguru even provides thorough explanations for, say, why British Airways' seat 1K is so favored by VIPs (it's the most private sleeper) and why the bulkhead seats have more legroom but tend to be more narrow.
