BFing on Plane

Question for any BTDT mamas who have BF on an airplane. Really I just want to hear some success stories to help build my confidence. Logan and I will be flying to Kansas on Wednesday, just the two of us, and I would really like to BF to help keep him calm but I am very nervous about it. I really haven't spent too much time BFing in public and when I do I use a hooter hider. I just checked today and my flight is not full so it is very likely I will have an open seat next to me which relaxes me a little bit. I did some searching on the internet and sounds like it is very common for women to BF on a plane.

Does anyone have some experiences they want to share?

Thanks ladies!

I just got back this afternoon from Georgia, I fed Eloise both on the flight there and today on the flight home. Today I nursed her twice in a 90 minute flight. It is really easy, I tend to wear a longer shirt just in case, but I have never had an issue with feeding her. I do prefer the window seat since it is a bit easier to deal with, but I have breast fed in all seating configs, with people next to me and not. It really isn't bad, I actually have less trouble nursing on an airplane then I do in the middle of the mall. I have never had anyone say anything to me or any other issues.
