They launched a middle seat lottery. Each week, they give prizes to passengers. One is a full-day helicopter pub crawl. Another prize is free plane tickets. But if I get the tickets, my only question is do I have a middle seat? 'Cause all I really wanted was an armrest to call my own. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
