There’s not many times in life short kings win out, but on planes we do

I would just get the extra leg room for a fee or an emergency exit? I feel like an extra $300 is a lot when flights to Europe alone are like $400 but that’s just me! 😆

I think it depends on how much you value extra comfort vs. $300. I now make enough money that I would pay the $300, but years ago I would haven’t even considered it.

I’m 6’4” and would definitely upgrade. Cramped legroom in economy is awful

Yeap!

Do you need the extra width of a first class seat or just the legroom? If you're tall and wide (broad shouldered or overweight), then I'd lean towards first class. If you're tall but not wide, an economy seat with extra legroom (exit row or economy plus) is the way to go.

No just get extended leg room seats

I’m all about convenience…so I’d pay the $300.

No

I’ve just assumed a total loss but curious if there are any options to consider. Have thought about repair shops
