This is the most popular seat on a plane and we totally get why

  • It’s that time of the year – we’re all frantically Googling ‘best cities 2019‘ so that we can make the most of the sun this summer.

    And once you’ve picked the hottest destination and found the perfect Airbnb, all that’s left to do is board the plane and jet off above the clouds.

    But there’s one super important detail that we’ve missed: you also need to pick your plane seat.

    While some people love the window spot, others love the aisle (and we can all agree that absolutely no one would volunteer themselves for the middle).

    So which seat is the most popular?

    Flight attendant Grace Ferguson told ’19F is so popular because it’s in the middle of the aircraft, which generally has more luggage space available, so you don’t have to rush on-board first, you can wait until the lines are a little smaller, enjoy your coffee and avoid that hectic rush.’

    And if you’re in first class: ‘On all aircraft types across the Virgin Australia network, 2A is a business class suite or seat, which offers priority boarding, extra baggage space and allowance.

    ‘2A is also popular as it also offers a little more privacy than the first row and has fantastic views, as there is no sight of the over wing.’
