I’m a pilot and there’s a smart way to always get off the plane first – The Irish Sun
A PILOT revealed the best way to make sure you get off the plane first when you’re in a hurry.
Pilot Jonny Knowlson previously shared some of his top tips for making your flight that much easier.
Jonny offered advice for those who wanted to rush off the plane as quickly as possible to avoid the long waits.
He explained: “Front left and rear left work well on many short-haul flights, as we usually disembark from that side of the plane, front and rear.
“And it’s crucial to be at an exit on the left-hand side of the larger planes if you want to avoid being at the end of that pass line.”
If you’re only flying with carry-on luggage, he recommends trying to be on the plane first so you’re closest to your bags in the overhead bins.
With the British currently facing each other huge queues at the airport that could last until the summer, his tips might get you off the plane a little faster.
Jonny also revealed the best places for people who want to sleep and passengers who are afraid of flying.
He said: “For the quietest seat, sit as far forward and as far from the engines as your budget will allow. If you miss the front row, you should opt for an aisle seat.
“It will be a bit quieter than by the window, although the view is less appealing.”
“Did you know that if you are looking for the smoothest ride, sitting over the wings on a large aircraft flying at higher altitudes is an advantage to you.
“Being closer to the aircraft’s center of gravity while it is being acted upon by forces such as lift, torque, wind, gravity, drag and thrust means you are well positioned for a smooth ride.”
