What are the best airplane seats? What are the major advantages and
spots for airplane seats in differents parts of a plane? How to choose
the right seat for yourself? We will try to answer
these and other questions for those of our readers who care about
airplane seating comfort.
The biggest difference between airplane seats is the class of travel.
Each class has its own seat standards. The airplane seat
legroom and seating width varies between different airlines and types
of airplanes. Of course, any airplane seat in the
business/ first class will be more
comfortable than one in the economy travel class, but if you
learn other not so visible but also very important airplane
seat details that vary from one seat to another within the same travel
class, it may help you make better choices and add more comfort to your
air travel. You have to consider all pros and cons for each seating
location to figure out which one would be the right choice for YOU.
Only you can answer this question: what is best airplane seat for me?
Take into consideration the following strong points and disadvantages
for seats located in the different sections of a plane:
Airplane FRONT seats
you will be among the first passangers to leave the plane; less
closeness to the washrooms- people passing by your seat.
you can board the plane first to take more room in
the overhead storage bins.
more noise from airplane engines, more turbulence
sickness has less effect
too far from the washrooms; view is impared by the wing
ROW seats (in front of the airplane's partition walls)
is no row in front of you, so if you are flying with children, they
will not bother people in front of you; there are no people reclining
into your lap
too close to watch a movie if it projected on a screen; less legroom
nice view (unless it is the one over the wing!); more private space
colder area; less room for elbows and legs
more leg and elbow room; easier access getting up
people pass by your seat all the time; a passengerr sitting by the
window can ask you to let him get out.
when flying with a child, so your spouse and you can "lock" the kid in
between; when flying in a group.
least privacy on board
Book your airplane ticket as much in advance as possible and secure
your seats also as
early as you can. If you have special needs or travel with children,
let your travel agent know about that, so the best available airplane
seat would be reserved for you according to your situation.
After booking your flight, you should find out which type of aircraft
will be flying on. Visit the airline's web
and learn the airplane seat map of your carrier's
web site contain all necessary information for finding bad and good
seating areas in any particular type of airplane.
As soon as the airplane door is shut, you are allowed to move to any
available seat. Use this chance to occupy the airplane seat that suits
you best, may be even two seats or a whole row, so you can
later lie down and have a comfortable sleep.
