Most frequent flyers know the ins and outs of flying and usually choose to upgrade when possible. But have you ever purchased a seat next to the toilets on purpose?

According to, flyer John Burfitt always purchases the ‘worst’ seat when traveling on purpose. He explained,

“After once spending an entire flight being kicked in the back by a passenger, I vowed never to have a similar experience again. Sure enough, on my next flight, I booked into the back row of the cabin and, even better, my seat was the one right next to the window. I nestled into that corner, I discovered what true airline love is about. I had just found the best seat on the plane.”

If you can get past the smells, this might be the perfect seat for your next flight as well!
