Best plane seats to choose and avoid, travel expert reveals

Britons are gearing up for summer, which means many of us will soon be flying to sunny skies.

Whether you aim for the aisle or you want to watch the world go by out the window, the perfect seat will be different for all of us depending on what you’re looking for.

Enhanced comfort, privacy, accessibility or safety as well as views to the world below are all considered.

What if you miss your flight due to airport delays

With this in mind, tourism expert Anton Radchenko from AirAdvisor provided us with a list of the best places to sit (and where you should avoid).

What is the best seat to choose on the plane?

The front of the plane

If you want to make the most of the amenities – Anton recommends sitting at the front of the plane.

Travelers often board and disembark first, which reduces boarding time.

In addition, the front of the plane Get food and drinks first.

Usually there is also less turbulence and it also tends to be quieter.

Sitting by the window

According to Anton, many of us are fans of window chairs and with good reason.

The coveted chairs are very handy because we can use the window as a headrest.

Not to mention, people won’t wake you up so they can go to the bathroom.

Anton adds that the left side of the plane typically offers more headrest than the right due to the placement of the windows, so aim for the left side.

Middle Seat and Overwing

Most people aim for something other than the middle because it’s cramped.

However, the middle seat, on the wing, is really the most comfortable place.

This is useful for people who suffer from motion sickness or prefer the smoothest possible ride.

aisle chair

For those looking for more legroom without sacrificing the ability to recline, the aisle is a great option.

Visitors can extend and raise the handrail for more space.

Best of all, it’s easier to get up and use the bathroom or move around in the room flight than other points on the plane.

Partition chair

Anton says to proceed with caution when choosing a chair with partitions as you may not be able to store your personal items under your feet.

With that said, partition chairs are great for extra room and privacy.

In addition, you will also be one of the first to receive a drink.

Anton adds that many partition seats have an infant crib option so depending on your needs, that might be the place for you.

Airplane seats you should avoid

According to an AirAdvisor expert, there are areas to avoid when choosing where you want to sit on your next flight:

Seats in the back of the plane are not comfortable

You will feel more turbulence, and often louder, because the aircraft’s engines and auxiliary sources are closer to the rear.

Seating near the kitchen

The gallery can be at the front, back or middle of the plane and is larger because that’s where the crew stays during the flight. Those can be extremely uncomfortable during long flights or red eyes.

Seat next to the toilet

They are usually larger due to the many people standing around, the toilet flushes, is bright and has a bad smell.

These chairs are great for extra leg room but at the expense of losing the ability to recline and store stuff with your feet.

You should choose the seats that meet your needs and provide a comfortable flight, Anton recommends.

He added: “Choosing a seat near the window in the middle or front of the plane will be more suitable for most people.

“However, if traveling with young children, seats near the bulkhead will provide cribs and more space, plus you won’t have to worry about them kicking into the seat in front of them.

“Anton recommends always checking the seating chart to determine the best seat for your specific needs and preferences.”
