Yo!

So I'm travelling on VA23 next week, and I used to enjoy getting seat 20H, but now that Platinum members apparently can't access Economy X without paying for it, what is the best option? I have a half marathon on the day before, so my legs are going to be killing me and so I'd love to either have some extra leg room, or a wall to put my feet on. Is 40G any good? I checked Seat Guru, but they don't seem to have been updated post Economy X.
Please share your wisdom.

If you dont want to pay for an exit row, or an x seat.  Best bet will be 51B/J they usually have couples and if you nab one you are unlikely have someone next to you ,  of course with the loading on the VA flights at the moment you would have decent chance of three seats to yourself if you go for a A or K seat anywhere towards the back of the bus..   Mind you I would just pay the extra for the x seat..  its worth it.

Domestic Only,  Long Haul, Platinum get no discount or preference to LAX or HK for EcononmyX.
