Why you should try to nab seat F when flying in to Heathrow | The Sun

A PASSENGER has revealed which seats you should always book if you're flying into London Heathrow.

Air travel allows travellers to get a unique view of cities, especially if their plane has already started its descent.

However, some seats offer better views than others, so it's worthwhile knowing which approach your plane will be making, so you can plan accordingly.

London Heathrow is on the west of the capital, so flights from most places in Europe or Asia will ordinarily have to fly over the city before touching down.

That's why Instagram account ub1ub2 has revealed which seats you should book when flying to the airport.

In a video, they showed scenes of some of London's most famous monuments captured from the air.

"Here’s a handy tip by @ub1ub2 Always choose the F seats, for a more comfortable and enjoyable journey."

One user wrote: "Lovely view; thanks for the tip!"

Another said: "Facts!!! I got a nice pic of the Eye while flying in."

A third added: "Oh yes I did, was just an amazing view of London city."

However, other users were quick to point out that passengers had to make sure they were flying in the right direction for the hack to work.

One wrote: "You know they have different approaches to Heathrow right."

Another added a different suggestion for tennis fans.

They said: "Heads up for tennis fans—A seats are good if you want to see Wimbledon from the air!"

The seats on the right of the plane might give you the best views of London, but sitting on the left could be more comfortable.

According to founder of AirAdvisor, Anton Radchenko, who said: "The window seats on the left side typically have more headrest room than the right."

He added that this was "due to the location of the windows" with the door at the front pushing the wall slightly further away from the seats than it is on the other side of the aircraft.
