Some seat numbers missing on flight

  1. Dec 7, 2015 #1
    Why some row numbers like 13 ( know the reason of unlucky number), 18, 19, 20, 21, 32, 33 and 42 are missing on flights?

    So that certain rows are standardized across the fleet - e..g. 20 and 21 are always exit rows, or that 11 is always the first row in economy.

    This took Google less than a second to find.

    I used google but was not able to find the answers. Maybe I don't know the correct keyword. I typed "Why certain rows are missing in flights". Got the only result of sites showing why 13 is omitted.
    Why 18, 19 are omitted then?

    Did you bother to even read what I wrote? "So that certain rows are standardized across the fleet".

    It's nice to learn that assigning a number to a seat on an airplane also needs to follow a certain standard. :biggrin:
