Danny Ceballos Tell me Purser... what's the appropriate and effective way, when one is in a middle seat, of letting the people on either side of you know that you are ENTITLED to both armrests!! It makes me CRAZY that people are so f'ing selfish without realizing it. Ahhh... I feel better just asking the question. Thanks Purser!
Dear Frequent Flyer Danny-
Since you were assigned a middle seat in "the village," you are obviously poor and purchased your ticket on "I'macheepo.com". You are entitled to nothing let alone armrests. I recommend bringing your flight crew a small gift like chocolates from your local specialty shop and the crew may make eye contact with you as you try to wiggle your elbows onto the corners of the armrests. The chocolates may cost you more than that middle seat you purchased so it's really your call. Ahhh.... I feel better too! Glad I can help.
See ya' on the red-eye,
