Skyscanner reveals most sought after seat

60 percent of passengers prefer the window seat

A recent poll revealed which aircraft seats are the most popular, with seat 6A and window seat being the most sought after.

The poll conducted by flight comparison site Skyscanner questioned more than 1000 airline passengers on their seat preferences to find out if they preferred window, middle or aisle seats.

Skyscanner discovered by combining responses from passengers including whether their preferences reflected lucky, odd or even numbers, the most popular seat on a standard aircraft is 6A.

Almost half of the respondents said they preferred the front six rows of the plane, with 60 percent saying they prefer the window seat, 39 percent opted for the aisle and only one percent sought after the middle seat.

Skyscanner’s travel editor Sam Baldwin said some passengers seem to opt for the middle section near the wings where there is less turbulence.

“Others want to be near the front for ease of getting off the plane, less engine noise or even to get a better choice of food available,” Ms Baldwin said.

“The window seems a popular choice for those looking to sleep, especially for long haul flights, while those who take more trips to the toilet prefer the aisle so as not to disturb fellow passengers, as do tall passengers looking to stretch their legs.

“Frequent flyers 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.”
