Web site: 6A the perfect plane seat

April 24, 2012 at 5:37 PM

EDINBURGH, Scotland, April 24 (UPI) -- Scotland-based flight comparison site Skyscanner said its poll indicates airline passengers consider 6A to be the best seat on a standard aircraft.

The Web site said its poll of more than 1,000 airline passengers found many riders valued being able to sit near the front of the plane while others preferred the middle of the aircraft, making Row 6 the perfect compromise. The site said passengers also liked having window seats, making 6A the most sought-after location on the aircraft.

"Frequent flyers have also reported that the left-hand side of the plane is best as the windows are off center, allowing for wall space to lean on," said Sam Baldwin, travel editor for Skyscanner. "I just hope that the low-cost carriers don't find out that there is such demand for seat 6A and start charging a premium for it!"
