    I booked some flights in the U.S. flying the above carriers. Any tips at all for getting the best seats etc?

    I choose Southwest Airlines where I could because they get good reviews – and offer the benefit of including carry-on and 2 checked bags within their standard fare.

    If you’re flexible with dates/times, a first class ticket is often not that much more than coach.

    Well Southwest is no allocated seats – you board in order which is determined by your check-in position. If you’re wanting a specific seat you’ll either want to pay extra or ensure you’re checked in no more than 1 min after check-in opens 24 hrs out to get a good location in the queue.
