Air Travel Tips – Australia

Avoid flying early morning and late afternoon on the eastern seaboard routes. Because, these flights are usually heavily booked by business people travelling between the capital cities.

Need extra leg room? Ask to be seated in a row that serves the exit doors as these rows seem to have more room.
