The battle for the best seat on a plane

The battle for the best seat on a plane is one airlines seem to find ever more inventive

ways of monetising。


  But flight comparison website Skyscanner today claimed to have identified the perfect

place to perch。


  The site surveyed more than 1,000 airline passengers on their seat preferences - the

study did not consider the extra legroom factor - looking at which section of the

aircraft they chose, and whether they sat in the middle, aisle or window。


  And the verdict is in - seat 6A。

  Previous research has found that passengers prefer the front six rows of the plane,

while 60 per cent of people favour a window seat, 40 per cent opt for the aisle and just

one per cent the middle. The survey also found that 31E, a middle seat located near the

back of the plane, was the one most wanted to avoid。


  Skyscanner travel editor Sam Baldwin explained the reasons for the results.He said:

Our poll shows that travellers are very particular about where they sit, with most

people heading towards the front of the aircraft on the left hand side。


  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.I

think it¨s easy to see why seat 31E is the most unpopular, as it¨s an awkward middle

seat, towards the rear of the aircraft which is neither close to the exit doors or the



  He added: There is always a great rush to get on board and get that favoured seat

and I think it is really interesting that there are so many differing opinions on this.I

just hope that the low cost carriers dont find out that there is such demand for seat 6A

and start charging a premium for it!


  Budget carrier easyJet recently announced that it was trialling a charge of up to

♀12 per person for passengers to reserve their seats on flights. Seats on five routes,

usually operated on a first come first served policy, will cost ♀12 in the front row or

exit rows with extra leg room, ♀8 to be seated in the front few rows and ♀3 for any

other seats。
