In economy class, you can opt for seats with more legroom or less background noise (turbine noise).

1. Seat at the emergency exit

Seats directly at the emergency exit give you more legroom and are therefore recommended for longer flights. However, there are restrictions on which people are allowed to sit in these seats. You can find out more about this at:
