Paying for a seat reservation…

So I asked Mr. Bill to check out seat reservations on our Germany flight.  There were none, so he decided to make them.  But it turns out Lufthansa charges for seat reservations made more than 24 hours in advance.  A lot of seats were taken and he didn’t want to risk us being seated apart.  So he paid $70 for us to be able to sit together.  Considering one of the seats he reserved was a middle seat, I kind of think it sucks.  But I’d rather pay the $70 and know we have seats together than not, I guess.

If you don’t want to pay the money, you can risk reserving your seat 23 hours before you take off.  It probably would have worked out if we hadn’t reserved our seats, but this move is stressful enough as it is.  By this time next week, I expect to be comatose in some German hotel.  Bill will be preparing for his new job and I will be entertaining the dogs and looking for housing.  Should be fun.

I’m getting pretty sick of all the nickeling and diming on flights these days…  I hope we enjoy Lufthansa, though.  I bet we’ll like it better than United.  At the same time, shame on Lufthansa for charging $70.  Or maybe shame on us for paying it…  I did laugh when Bill said our seats are near the latrine.
