Sitting near a over the wing exit my favorite place to sit on. A Southwest plane

New Arrival

based on my past experience flying on southwest airlines. I always felt safe sitting near or by a over the wing exit preferably by the engine.

That and being seated near the center of the plane always yield a smoother ride.

I've thought it over many times about writing this, but, here goes.  It has also been determined that the further to the back of the plane to better the chance to survive a crash.  But like you, I like that seat too.  Unfortunately for me, my wife doesn't, so I'm usually in the first 10 rows.  When I fly alone, I snag that seat for the leg room.   May now be getting it for the fact one row only has 2 seats.
