The most comfortable and safe places on the plane

Like in any other aircraft, the safest seats in the ATR ATR 42-300/320 are located in the rear of the cabin, closer to the exit. This is because in the event of an emergency, the aircraft usually gets destroyed in the front, so passengers in the rear have a higher chance of survival.

As for comfort, the most comfortable seats are in the business class, if available on the flight. In the economy class, the most comfortable seats are near the exit, as they usually have more legroom and allow for a quicker exit during landing.

In general, the choice of seat in the aircraft depends on the passenger's individual preferences. Some prefer window seats to enjoy the view, while others prefer aisle seats to quickly exit the aircraft. In any case, it is worth studying the cabin layout and choosing the most suitable seat before purchasing a ticket.
