I'm going on a flight soon and I am wondering where the best place to sit is as I want to be sure that if anything happens, I would want the seat to be convenient for most situations.

    $\begingroup$ Well, for a community of aviation enthusiasts, the best seat is one with a view out the front. But, presumably you're talking about a passenger flight. $\endgroup$ Jul 26 '18 at 0:10

    $\begingroup$ The most likely thing to "happen" is you requiring to go to the toilet. In this case you'd want to be in an isle seat not too far away from the lavatory :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Nothing is going to happen. The best seat on the plane is the front left one, but its reserved for the Captain. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm more interested in the best seat IN the plane... $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @abelenky: But in my plane, I AM the captain :-) And I think questions like this would be better suited to the Travel site. $\endgroup$
