Question

My wife is a bad flyer. She’s very afraid, Where is the best place to sit in a plane that you feel less of theturbulence and motion movement. I assume some seats feel more then others or am I dreaming?  (   From Mario)

Answer

Flying through turbulence can be uncomfortable, especially for those who are somewhat apprehensive about flying in an airplane.  Pilots always try to maintain a smooth flight.  However as the weather, air currents and smooth air are beyond human control, it is not always possible.  There is not much difference in feeling the turbulence between the front and the back of an airplane.  Although,  sitting in the middle or the front part of the cabin, it may feel somewhat better.
