Heading to the front end of the plane can alleviate some of those discomforts, but the prices for those can reach the same levels as a cruising Boeing 777. There are ways to get around this however.

Points awards schemes – while not for everyone – can allow the wise traveller to get access to the premium cabins. Not only is there the more comfortable seat, there are also exclusive lounges and much better food on offer.
