Thanks for all the info.

Went to Continental.com to get my seat assignment.
The flight is about three months away and the three best seats were already
taken. No other seats were assigned.

Either Continental saves them or someone who flies this route a lot has
booked them all.


They might block exit row seats for frequent fliers

Have a trip coming up via Continental Express on an Embraer RJ135.

Haven't seen one. From a seating chart online, it looks like the front


two

seats on the right side will have more leg room. I'm 6' 5" and dread the
cramped seating.

It also look like the seats in front of the over wing emergency exit might
have more spacing. Row 9, I think.

Are my assumptions right? Are the front seats for the attendants?

TIA,

Marc


Exit row seats are normally blocked until they can confirm that assignees
are capable of operating the emergency exit doors.

Also bear in mind that the exit row window seats on the Embraer jets
have an irritating little half-armrest on the window side to allow for
the exit to open. Drives me absolutely batty; I avoid those seats when
I can. The exit-row AISLE seat is OK, but the ones next to the
overwing exits I avoid.

It may be airline specific, but United allows Premier Executive and
above (1K, Global Express) members to choose an exit row when booking
the flight. Regular Premier members and non-frequent fliers on United do
not have this option.
