Best seat in an aircraft revealed

   Apr 26, 5:47 pm

Melbourne, April 26 (ANI): A new survey has revealed the best -and worst - seats on a plane.

Apparently, the best place to sit on a plane is seat 6A.

Flight comparison website Skyscanner surveyed more than 1000 airline passengers on their seat preferences looking at the section of the plane they chose and whether they sat in the middle, aisle or window seats.

"The most popular seat, 6A, is well positioned for those wanting to disembark the aircraft quickly without being too close to the hustle and bustle of the front toilets," News.com.au quoted Skyscanner's Travel Editor Sam Baldwin as saying.

"I just hope that the low cost carriers don't find out that there is such demand for seat 6A and start charging a premium for it," he added.

Baldwin said passengers generally prefer the front left side of planes and that those sitting near the front will also hear less engine noise and get a better choice of food, among other benefits.

"Frequent fliers have also reported that the left hand side of the plane is best as the windows are off centre, allowing for wall space to lean on," he added.

This survey supports previous studies, which have found that the front six rows of the plane are the most popular, taking 45 per cent of the votes.

Other passengers prefer the middle section near the wings where they are less likely to feel turbulence.

And the worst seat is seat 31E, the awkward middle seat which is located near the back of the plane and isn't close to toilets or exit doors.

The survey did not include the extra legroom factor. (ANI)
