When choosing airplane seats, it is safe to say that the hardest question most people have to answer their travel agent or computer is whether they prefer the window or the aisle seat, yet British Airways went one step further and pinpointed the seats that travellers are vying for.
It seems that those who want to get out as quickly as possible, follow through with their intentions as those who choose to sit at the front part of economy, also wanted to sit on the aisle.
Conversely, those who sat at the back preferred the window seat.
Overall travellers preferred the window seat and opted to sit on the right hand side of the aircraft, when given the choice.
The most popular seats on British Airways Boeing 747 were the ones where pairs of travellers had the row to themselves, which includes twin seats 51/52B, 51/52C, 51/52H and 51/52J.
First Class travellers were more likely to pick front row seats 1A and 1K as their favourites, whilst Club World (business class) passengers liked to travel in the upper deck toward the back of the aircraft in seats 62A and K and 64A and K.
