I have to tell you that your web site is so great and it helps many people.
I have one question for you. Is it better to sit in the front or back of the plane for a smoother ride?
Thanks again on a great site.
Best of luck to you
You probably have missed this common question and the answer in my site.
Generally the best seats are at the front - that's where the first class seats are located. However, if you are prone to airsickness in turbulence, sit as close to the wings or at least in front of the wings as you can. The reason is - you are closer to the center of gravity (CG), or to put it simply, the fulcrum of a see-saw. The further you are from the fulcrum, the more you are going to experience the motion.
Technically, the CG of the plane moves around the wings (changes as fuel is being consumed) and not exactly at the middle of the cabin. So anything near or forward of the wings would give you a smoother ride than if you are further back.
The reality of flying is that, when turbulence strikes, the whole plane is generally affected. So you can't escape turbulence but the effect may be slightly alleviated by the seating position.
