'Perfect' Plane Seat Located Row six, by the window: survey By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Apr 28, 2012 8:50 AM CDT 12 comments Comments So, where would you want to sit? (©kevin dooley) (Newser) – The perfect plane seat: 6A. A new survey from Skyscanner came to that conclusion after determining that most passengers, given a choice, want to sit in a window seat toward the front of the aircraft. Previous studies have also found the first six rows of a plane to be the most popular, the Telegraph reports, since they are seen as being quieter and easier from which to disembark. (Plus, the food selection is better.) The worst seat? A middle seat toward the back, determined to be 31E by the survey. For some reason, 1% of respondents did say they would willingly choose a middle seat.
