Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Airborne Rescue on Twitter. In response to my tweeting this USA TODAY story about seat-saving on Southwest flights…
“Want the seat next to you to stay vacant on Southwest? Wear a surgical mask and place a box of Kleenex on your lap. Works like a charm! (Unless the plane’s full.)”
Ha! That would work for me. Have you tried this—or have a better strategy? Please share in the comments below.
Merry Christmas/happy holidays!
