$14 well spent

Greetings and Salutations from the cradle of paradise that is Cincinnati, Ohio! I'm here visiting the S.O. and so far so good. :)

I bought my plane ticket online with United and booked a seat at the very back of the plane. The flight was full so I didn't have a choice. While I was checking in online yesterday, I was given the option having an aisle seat in the 5th row, which happens to be the "Economy Plus" section that boasts 5" of extra leg room. Let me just say that sitting up front, in an aisle seat, with extra leg room, and an empty seat next to me, was worth the extra $14. Let's hope I'm this lucky on my way home Sunday, as when I booked the ticket, I couldn't even get a seat assignment. Eeep.
