Unfortunately a medical requirement, I have circulation problems and have been advised that sitting in the back for more than 6 hours is not good for me. Apart from that I prefer to sit in the front.

Enjoy the travels then 1DC. Nothing better than to spend you money just the way you like it.

Well I rest my case from when I started this thread. They are finding it impossible to social distant at airports.

Airports are designed to concentrate diverse bodies to pack them into aircraft.

Then unpack them at the other end.

Give everyone a parachute and lob them out at 2000ft as you fly a pass down the runway. That will keep them separated, save on landing fees too.
