The Most popular Seats On An Airplane
I prefer a window seat, but as long as it gets me where I need to go, I’m not fussy. Where do you like sitting on an airplane? At the very front or the very back? At a window or an aisle? According to research by British Airways, the most popular seats on a Boeing 747 are all the way in the back of the plane.
Those seats are the most commonly chosen by travelers because on a 747, they’re the only seats that come in a pair (as opposed to three seats in a row). Makes sense. What’s interesting is that in First Class, it’s the exact opposite. The most popular seats are at the very front of the plane.
British Airways also found that people generally prefer window seats to aisle seats as window seats had 6% more bookings and that people like the right hand side over the left hand side of the aircraft.
