Best Seats For Surviving A Plane Crash
Where you are seated could well save your life in the event of a crash landing.
Pick a seat close to an exit door.
Pick an aisle seat. Every second matters.
Pick the rear portion of the aircraft as passengers in the tail of the aircraft have a 40% better chance of out-surviving those in the front! Not good news for those who prefer flying 1st class!
