What are your favourite seats on a flight?

of course when I’ve been lucky enough to get a free upgrade….that’s definitely my favourite seat

Essex UK

Short trips definitely the window as love the view as coming in to land, but long haul it had to be the aisle seat .

North Northumberland

Funnily enough, here we have been talking about aircraft seating preferences and then yesterday there was a report in the Daily Mail regarding Thomas Cook introducing ‘Lie Flat’ seating in economy class…

For those whose budgets may not extend to travelling Business Class Singapore Airlines now also operate a ‘Premium Economy’ Section on their long haul flights…



In due course I will be happy to update on this seating arrangement.

That space between the left hand side of the window seat and the aircraft bulkhead.

As there usually is a formed curve, which becomes even more pronounced on the A380, this will accommodate all sorts of items.

I usually stuff my blanket and pillow in first and then maybe my camera, laptop or even a book on top.

Damn. Giving all my secrets away.

For a long trip, splurge on business class.

The farther you are in front of the wing the quieter it will be.

For an overnight flight in coach: buy a 3 seat section. Raise the arm rest to convert the seats into a bed. For two people, one sleeps on the seats, the other on the floor in front of the seats.

Good morning WASWATCH

I’m in total awe…

Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves.

Happy to save $120.00 on an excursion …

Then splurge savings on Business Class.

Mind, one can always fly Air New Zealand with their economy class Sky Couch…

Have a nice day.

PS You still haven’t answered @Fossil question at..

Some good tips there @WASATCH but not sure I fancy sleeping on a floor that has who knows what on it or trodden into it!!

Just to add to the conversation, I always call the seat near the window, the inside seat although it’s actually the outside of the aeroplane (but in my view, you’re trapped on the inside). And I call the aisle seat the outside seat. My partner disagrees and we just agree it’s a men are from Mars thing. My favourite seat is the one nearest the drinks trolley.
