The Business of Sitting on Airplanes

There is an option, sometimes, like on an airline like Delta, where you can buy “trip extras” in advance. I always buy the Wi-Fi passes ahead of time because they’re $16, rather than $34 if you’re buying them during your flight. For $15, you can buy a “priority boarding” pass, which allows you to be one of the first passengers on the plane, giving you early access to the overhead bins and allowing you ample time to get comfortable in your seat.
