Near the bathroom, close to the Stewarts galley, middle seat, the non-fully recline seat, broken seat,
Traveling by air is a daily task for many people, and they have come to realize seating is an important factor one needs to consider when they are booking a flight. There are some fantastic seats on the plane while there are others you want to avoid at all costs. Based on research and personal interviews, we have garnered information on some of the best and worst seats to choose from while flying. However, it turned out that what is suitable for many, is sore for others. You may want to think about these seating arrangements…
Near the Bathroom
The seat near the bathroom may give some advantage for being near the crew, but on the flip side, it may be a big mistake. Aside from the smell that may be coming in from the bathroom, you will also experience a constant line of passengers in your space waiting to use the lav. Also, the area closer to the bathroom is the “gathering space” for those who desire to exercise their legs, and you will get bounced a lot when double-line traffic is formed.
Close to the Stewarts Gallery
Sitting close to the crew has its advantages and disadvantages for all flyers. However, when you sit in this region, you can count on being served first and have easy access to staff, but on the flip side, the area may get a little busy when they are summoned by passengers and have to pass by you frequently.
The middle seat can be good, especially for those who are scared to be close to the window and scared of height. However, when you choose the middle seat, there are some disadvantages people will always pass by you, either disturbing your stretched legs or getting bounces on your shoulder in “double-lane” traffic. Should anything be passed from one column to the passenger by the window, you will be inconvenienced. The middle seat will have you sitting up like a soldier, especially if it is a stranger close to you that you can snuggle up with.
There is always a broken seat on airplanes, whether you believe it or not, and it is not always the best seat to choose from. There are so many disadvantages with this seat to include a malfunctioning entertainment screen or a crunching setting with the seat itself. The seat may also have a bad seat belt amenity with no table – a huge mistake to sit with for a 12-hour flight. If your seat is broken, you may need to alert the flight attendant, and you could be in luck of an upgrade if possible. However, if the flight is full, you might be stuck with this inconvenience for a long time.
Non-Fully Recline Seat
The non-reclining seats are annoying as if you have a long flight, you may not be able to get a comfortable ride. Having to sit up for so long, may not be the best solution as it can be stressful on your back and more. Also, the seat in front of you that can recline will leave you inconvenienced when the space in front of you is limited.
