What’s The Best Seat On An Airplane?

April 27, 2012 in Daily Bulletin

Skyscanner polled over 1000 airline passengers about their airplane seat preferences, when extra leg room isn’t available. Some of the results include:

  • The most sought after seat is 6A – a window seat in the sixth row of the aircraft.
  • In general the first six rows of a plane are the most popular with 45% of survey respondents picking a seat in those rows as their favourite.
  • 60% of passengers prefer window seats and 40% prefer aisle seats.
  • The least popular seat is 31E – a middle seat towards the back of the plane.
  • Frequent fliers prefer to sit on the left of the plane because the windows are off-center meaning that they can rest their head against the wall.
