You’d almost rather ride on the OUTSIDE of a plane than be stuck in a middle seat between two strangers. So this is a tough question . . .
If someone in a middle seat asked to switch with you so they could sit next to their friend, would you do it? According to a new survey, a very generous 45% of us would say yes.
Another 35% said they’d move as long as they DIDN’T have to sit in the middle between two people. 11% would only move if they got an aisle seat, and 5% would only do it for a window seat. Just 1% said they’d give a hard NO, and wouldn’t move for any reason.
The survey also asked what you’d do if someone cut in line in front of you while you were boarding. Obviously you’re all getting on the same plane, but you’ve also gotta think about overhead bin space. So it matters.
57% said they’d ignore it, or wouldn’t care. 35% said they’d confront the person about it, and 8% would tell a staff member.
