It doesn’t matter how short or long your flight is; if you don’t have the right seat on the plane, then you’re going to be in for a miserable time. That’s why going in to any flight prepared and understanding what seats you should be avoiding is of paramount importance. On the list that follows, we’re going to share 12 airplane seats that you should absolutely avoid! From the ones that might be obvious to the ones that seem too good to be true, they’re all here. So, up your airplane-flying game, and make sure you don’t park your keister in any of these seats!
1. The Back of the Plane
Being at the back of the bus was cool when you were in grade school; when you’re on an airplane, it just means you’ll be waiting a long time to get off the plane once you land.
2. The Not Window Seat Window Seat
Want to gaze out while you’re up in the sky? Take the window seat! Just make sure it’s not one of those “window seats” that’s actually awkwardly between two windows.
3. The Exit Row
Okay, so the legroom is definitely clutch here, but remember that when you take this seat that you’re losing storage space beneath the seat in front of you.
4. The Row in Front of the Exit Row
If legroom is in abundance for the exit row, understand that this equals legroom that’s at a premium in the row in front of the exit row.
