Window or Aisle? What your seat on a plane says about you.

Window seat fans. Some are born, some become them, some have fandom thrust upon them.

The psychology of plane seats has been doing the rounds for several years, but, interestingly, experts – or, at least, those happy to talk about it – always seem to draw the same conclusions. There might be a reason for that – the seat you choose, psychologist Jonathan Bricker has said in the past, is “a rare opportunity to have some control over your environment when travelling.”
