Emergency Exit Seats on International Flights

Emergency Exit Seats on International Flights

  1. Ctenoid

    My wife and I make 3 or 4 long haul international trips a year, most often BKK – LAS.

    As a non U. S. resident I do not have a spend requirement to earn status on either Delta or United or most of their alliance partners. I can easily qualify for gold status each year flying economy. All I care about is leg room. I am 6′ 6″senior citizen. Mileage earn, free flights etc are of little value to me. I have had Delta Gold status or higher for over a decade and Delta always gives me an emergency exit seat on every leg free. Unfortunately Delta closed their BKK operations in 2017. I started flying BKK to HKG on Emirates and then HKG – LAS on Delta, but now Delta has closed their HKG operations. I started using China Eastern, BKK-LAX but they charge for every leg to get an emergency exit seat. Any suggestions? All I care about is price and legroom.

    If your primary focus is legroom and price, it may be more cost-effective to book the cheapest flight and pay for the emergency exit row, rather than chasing status with a specific airline.
