Pick a quiet spot for your peace

Research by easyJet revealed that the most in-demand seat on a plane is near the front of the plane – presumably for the perceived ease of disembarkation. Those seeking peace and quiet may wish to avoid the front, however, as this is where parents with babies will often travel, and where flight attendants will be clattering around with drinks trolleys. The other area to avoid are seats near the toilet as that would mean loud door banging, and people hovering around you as they wait to use the toilet.

Don’t drink too much on the plane
