Show Notes:

This week, we talk about what it would take to choose a middle seat on a plane and what Virgin Atlantic is doing to make middle seats more enticing. Let us know what you think: would you accept a gift like a free ticket or cruise in exchange for the middle seat (like Shelly) or avoid it at all costs (like Stephanie)?
