Finally: Perfect seat on airplane identified

More than 1,000 airline passengers were questioned on which section they preferred to sit in and whether they opted for a window, middle or aisle seat.

After filtering the results of the survey, Skyscanner concluded the most sought-after spot on a standard aeroplane is seat 6A.

The finding supports previous studies that have suggested the front six rows are the most popular for ease of getting off the plane, reduced engine noise and a better selection of food. Nearly half of those surveyed agreed this was the optimum section of an aircraft.
