Safest Seat on an Airplane

Attention paranoid fliers: if you want to survive a crash, sit on the aisle near an emergency exit. The results of a study commissioned by the Civil Aviation Authority reveals that passengers sitting more than six rows from an exit faced the most likely chance of perishing, usually from toxic fumes, smoke or fire. It also seems those pricier first class seats could prove worth the higher price tag, and not just because of more legroom and an extra bag of peanuts, as the study discovered the front of a plane had a 65 percent survival rate compared to 53 percent in the back of the aircraft.
