Staying comfy at 30,000 feet has become a challenge.

Whether airline travelers are sitting in the last row or in business class, they all want the same thing — to be comfortable.

"If you’re willing to pay more, there are ways to make the flight more comfortable," said Jeff Klee, CEO of CheapAir.com.

Klee predicts that the trend of some airlines charging for advance seat assignments for premium seats like window and aisle seats will grow, and he wouldn’t be surprised if airlines started charging for any advance seat assignment in the future.

Even customers who aren’t prepared to pay extra to avoid lines and get coveted seats need to still be cautious to avoid hidden fees.

Klee, whose airfare shopping engine shows customers what amenities, like personal video monitors, live television, and Internet access, they are getting when they book a flight, shares his travel tips with The Daily Meal so you can save money and stay sane at 30,000 feet.
