  • I always pefer to ride in the last row, just because we have kids and nobody's in back of us and we are right next to the bathroom!!!
    Don't be scared. Seriously....when's the last time you heard of a plane having serious problems? long time. and think about how freequently planes fly everyday etc???....
    Good luck, have fun!!!!

  • It's not a "bad" ride, however, you usually can't recline the seats and it's next to both the galley, and the lavatories. Also, you are usually the last one to board and the last off the plane.

  • i have rode on the last row. its no different the others. i like it actually. i like to be a way from people. planes arent that bad, hopefully ur taking jetblue bc on jetblue u get free snacks, they habe all kinds of food & drinks to buy, u have a tv & etc.

  • I've always gotten seats in the middle, my mom had to ride in the last seat on our last trip and she said it was the worst sseat she's ever sitten in because it made her ears hurt.... But I think it depends on the size of a plane becasue I had to once and it wasn't bad at all. Have fun and try to get a window seat!! =]

  • It's just as safe as the front of the plane. Just relax take deep breaths and you'll be fine. Btw it's ridden not rode. not trying to be rude.

  • I didn't notice any difference in the back than anywhere else.. I will say, that do not expect to sleep though because there will be a constant stream of people in and out of the bathroom.

  • so much better when you have kids. You don't get the looks. It's louder (I guess you can hear the motor more) and expected in the back row

  • I would agree with the others there is really no difference between sitting in the front or the back. The seat recline slighly on some airlines. It is convenient to be near the bathroom when you are travelling with kids. Also sometimes a nice bonus of sitting back there is depeding on the flight the serve refreshments from the back to the front. A stewerdess is always going by to get their attention too. No big deal, you will be fine.

  • Another plus about being in the back row, on some planes it's the only row where the arm rests move, so it fits bigger carseats. We had to move to the back row one flight because DD's carseat wouldn't fit anywhere else.

  • I like the back!
