Where is the best place to sit on an airplane? And why do you need to use flight mode?

Read article


Traveling by plane has become a matter of course for many of us. But even seasoned passengers often ask themselves the question: where is the best place to sit on an airplane? The choice of seat can be decisive for comfort and well-being during the flight. In addition, there are always discussions about the necessity of flight mode during the flight. In this article, we highlight both the best seats on the plane and the reasons for using flight mode.

The best seats on an airplane: A question of comfort

Finding the best seats on an airplane depends on personal preference. Some passengers prefer window seats to enjoy the view and be able to lean back. Others prefer the aisle seat for more legroom and easier access to the aisle. Here are some factors to consider when choosing the best seat:

Window seat for the view - Ideal for those who want to admire the scenery during the flight or simply have a spot to lean on.

Aisle seat for freedom of movement - Perfect for travelers who like to move around or stand up frequently without disturbing the person sitting next to them.

Emergency exit rows - Offer more legroom, but the seats in these rows often cannot be fully reclined.

Front rows of seats - Allow faster boarding and disembarking and reduce waiting time when leaving the aircraft.

Why airplane flight mode?

The use of flight mode during the flight is not only a safety measure of the airlines, but also a regulation of the aviation authorities. The reason for this is that signals from electronic devices can potentially interfere with the aircraft's on-board electronics. By putting your device in flight mode, these signals are suppressed, minimizing the risk of such interference. Flight mode also helps passengers pay attention to safety announcements and reduces the risk of distractions during take-off and landing.

Tips for choosing the best seat

Book early - The best seats often sell out quickly. Booking early increases your chances of getting the seat you want.

Consider the aircraft types - Different aircraft types have different seat configurations. Find out in advance about the aircraft type and seating arrangement.

Use seat review portals - Websites such as SeatGuru offer reviews and recommendations on the best seats on different flights and in different types of aircraft.

The question of where to sit best on the plane ultimately comes down to personal preference. Whether you prefer the view out of the window, need more legroom or just want to get on and off the plane quickly, there is a seat to suit everyone. It is also important to follow the flight mode regulations to ensure the safety and comfort of all passengers. With a little planning and the right information, you can make your flight even more enjoyable.
