Find a great flight AND a great seat

Here are a couple of great tools for they flying business person.

imageFirst up is Kayak, a web-based tool for comparing airfares and flight times. Kayak is free, easy-to-use, and powerful. The tool searches over 100 travel sites looking for the best airfare and airline to fit your schedule.

Think Expedia, but covering more airlines. After selecting a flight, Kayak redirects you to the airline’s website to complete the reservation. I always feel a little better working directly through the airline. Maybe it’s my imagination, but I feel like it buys me some piece of mind should problems arise.

imageOnce you pick the perfect flight, this next tool will help you pick the perfect seat. Assuming you haven’t moved up to first class, SeatGuru will quickly help you rate available proletarian seats to make sure you end up with the most legroom and overhead space. It is fast and simple. Try it!
