Get that exit row seat: Airfarewatchdog.com shares tips on how

Stacey Wescott/Chicago Tribune

As airlines continue to put the squeeze on, exit row seats are increasingly important to an enjoyable flight.

The folks over at airfarewatchdog.com have put together a helpful, enlightening and vaguely maddening airline-by-airline guide to snagging those seats. It includes a few depressing truths and witty insights that make it worth a read, like this: "Want to feel like a second-class citizen? Fly Alaska without status. (Hope you enjoy the middle seat, all the way to Anchorage!)" Find it here.

And if you missed it, here is my recent Q and A with Matt Daimler, founder of seatguru.com, who discussed why seats are getting smaller and what lies ahead in airplane seating.
