13/18 seats were empty.
Not that I’m complaining, because I had all of the legroom plus an entire overhead.
When I booked my flight, it would have cost $70 dollars to book an economy plus seat. That’s almost what it costs to fly in garbage first class on something like an EMB-170 or CRJ-700. When I checked in, it would have cost me $40. Now? Economy plus in the first row and in the aisle for $20.
You mother fuckers know no one is buying those seats at that price, especially when 2/3 of the plane is filled with basic economy passengers that can’t even select seats. Why do we have to go through this every damn time? I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t able to get a front aisle seat for $20 or less.
