This is where to find the best seats on a plane if you want a quiet flight

For anyone that likes their peace and quiet while flying.

It's very likely that you'll be flying off on your summer holidays very soon - if you're not then don't worry because everyone knows that Weston Super Mare is better than Tenerife - but if you are about to be travelling on an airplane, this useful tip might come in handy.

A recent JetBlue video explained where you should sit on a plane to experience less turbulence and noise.

According to them:

"In most planes, the engines are located under the wings. Sitting in the front of the wing is like being behind a speaker. All of the sounds of the engine and the disturbed air are projected away from you."

While sitting in front of the wing won't shield you from a crying baby or a snoring passenger, it should increase your chances of a more relaxing flight.

Sadly the front of the plane tends to be where the expensive seats are though.

But if you have an opportunity to select your seats when booking online, try and go for ones towards the front if you can.
