Interactive seating charts for airplanes

Anyone who's ever taken a nine-hour flight can tell you just how profoundly one's happiness on such a flight is influenced, based on which particular seat you get assigned for that flight. Enter SeatGuru, a site which provides seating charts for major airlines and their various craft, as well as rollover capabilities giving you detailed information on each and every ass-holding space on that plane. Did you know, for example, that 13 rows out of 27 of American Airlines' Economy Section of its Boeing 757s have their own electrical outlets? Wanna make sure you're in one of those 13 rows on your next flight? Check out SeatGuru before making your reservation. (Many thanks to the magazine Business 2.0's online blog for pointing this out.)
