Call it an anti-social networking option. Oman Air has a new “My Space” option for economy class travelers to secure a blocked middle seat when flying.

JetBlue extended its block seating policy on flights through 1 December 2020, adding six additional weeks of limited capacity on all flights. But the carrier is also slightly reducing the number of seats blocked.
