Flight 9 in 2010

LHR – FRA Lufthansa Airbus A321-100

Learnt today that in the event of a crash, people sitting on the left side of the plane are marginally more likely to survive than people sat on the right side.  This, explained a bemused Flight Attendant after a passenger insisted on being moved to sit on the right hand side of the plane owing to a superstition, is because in normal circumstances people always exit a plane to the left, and so in an emergency try to do so too.  If you are already on the left you have less far to go.
