Anyone who flies often knows how much depends on a well-located seat in the aircraft cabin. Previously, it was only possible to choose between seats near the window or near the aisle. Thanks to online registration, today you can choose an empty seat in any part of the salon.

Almost all airlines today have switched to issuing electronic tickets, also called e-tickets. An electronic ticket can be printed on a regular sheet of paper or even remain in the computer's memory. The most important information in it is contained in a unique alphanumeric code - the booking number.
Online check-in for a flight usually begins 24 hours before departure, so you can easily check in at home in a relaxed atmosphere, rather than jostling in line at the counter. The presence or absence of baggage does not in any way affect the way of check-in; you will return it in the usual way already at the airport.
Find the booking number on your ticket, go to the carrier's website, start online check-in. By entering the booking number indicated on the ticket in the appropriate field, you will see the layout of the seats on the plane in front of you. You just have to choose the one you like the most.
The most comfortable are the first rows located immediately behind the business class. The places near emergency exits are also in high demand, the inter-row space there is larger than usual. But book this seat only if you are sure that in the event of an unforeseen situation you will be able to open the emergency hatch and help the rest of the passengers get out.
Some airlines offer seat selection during the purchase process. Unlike online registration, this service is paid, but it makes it possible to immediately take the place you need.
