A new study released recently says that the next time you fly, there might be a little extra room on the left side of the plane. Apparently it turns out that people have a more natural tendency to go to the right when choosing their seat.
The experiment was done by Edinburgh University in Scotland and discovered that travelers prefer to sit on a plane’s right side far more than the left despite how the seating chart is shown to them. “The result clearly showed that the orientation of the plane made no difference to the preference,” Professor Sergio Della Sala said, via the BBC.
“The research shows that people’s preference as to which side they sit on in an aeroplane is dictated by our mind’s rightward bias in representing the real world,” lead researcher Dr. Stephen Darling of Queen Margaret University added.
