Travel Tip of the Week: Mind your Gs and Ss

Most airports have a gate naming convention of LetterNumber and most seats have a naming convention of NumberLetter.  Concourses start at the beginning of the alphabet and so do seats so often there will be a gate B9 for a flight with a seat 9B.  You’d be amazed how many times I’ve seen people claim someone is in their seat to find out one juxtaposed the gate for their seat.  Not really a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but in these days of tight overhead bin space it can save some hassle.
