Safest Seats on a Plane

August 3, 2015

Safest seats on planeThe next time you find yourself stuck in the back of a plane in an undesirable seat painstakingly waiting for the drink cart to finally reach you, that seat is actually safest place. Two separate investigations from Time and Popular Mechanics found that seats toward the back of the plane are the safest, with Time finding that the seats with the very highest survival rates rates - 72% - are middle seats in the back third of the plane. 

But, as Time reminds us, planes are still the safest form of transportation.
