Wife and I heading down to Brazil tonight on an AA MileSAAver award.
We connect in Miami to head to Salvador, hoping that empty middle seat will hold!
The road back from Sao Paulo to New York JFK is on a 777 with 2-5-2 seating. Yikes! Imagine being in that middle seat? Some steely couples perhaps claim both aisles and hope the 3 interior seats stay clear, but that is taking a big chance. If it stays like this, it will be one of those awkward pre-takeoff periods where people look seat to seat, trying to avoid eye contact, trying to time the move just after people have finished boarding but before anyone else realizes boarding is finished.
