Everyone knows that you’ll get the most legroom if you sit on the emergency exit row. And sitting up the front means you get off the plane first. Avoiding bulkheads, meanwhile, narrows your chances of being seated near a crying baby.
But have you considered where to sit for the most attentive service?
According to flight attendant Annie Kingston, you'll receive the best service if you sit up the back.
“The reason is simple,” she explains. “We like to avoid responding to call bells from the front of the plane because answering one means potentially flaunting whatever item the passenger has requested to everyone else along the way.”
"This can cause a problem since planes often don't have enough extra vodka, pillows, earplugs and toothbrushes, or the time on shorter flights to deviate from the service schedule.
For passengers sitting near the back of the plane, however, it's much easier to slip in that second mini bottle of wine."
So if you’re after extra wine, you might want to change that seat you’ve booked for your next holiday.
