I'm checking in for my flight tomorrow and noticed that my current seat is in that handicap row (two wheelchair spots and a regular seat I guess). Will this seat have ample leg room? Should I just pick a regular seat? I've never sat in this area before.

I have sat in seats that have been labeled wheelchair something or other and never noticed a difference.

Check here for any issues:

http://www.seatguru.com/

edit: I should add I rarely recline, so check the above site for a better review than mine.

Curious, did you pick this seat in hopes of hitting on some young disabled woman?

Already posted, but seatguru is a must stop before picking your seat on any flight. Lots of inconsistencies between aircraft, airlines, etc (some exit row seats do not recline, some do...)

If you're really worried just have the K-man upgrade it...

Seatguru is a total life-saver, so I'm just adding my endorsement. Connie, check your seat on the site and tell us what you learn.

+3 on seat guru. I have used it every flight I've booked for a few years now.
