A new study claims to have found the best seat on an airplane: One seat that combines maximum comfort with convenience, and reduces the possibility of a stress-induced mid-flight mental breakdown - that seat is 6A.
Skyscanner is a flight comparison website, and they asked people about their air travel preferences and combined the results to find that one seat that's just right. According to the study, 45% of people prefer the first few rows of seats, a no-brainer, since those fliers get to board and de-plane first. But people don’t want to be too close to the bathrooms at the front of the plane. People also seem to prefer a window seat. And when you combine all those factors, the ideal seat is 6A.
So what's the worst seat on the plane? 31E. It’s a middle seat near the back of the plane which puts you right near stinky bathrooms, no easy sleep, unless you lean on your neighbor’s shoulder, a long wait for food and drinks, and since you’re in the middle, no view and no easy way to get up and move around.
So to review: Best seat, 6A. Worst seat, 31E.
