That's Why Airplane Seats Are Almost Always Blue

66890 ratings | 4493518 views
Have you ever noticed how airplane seats are almost always blue, and have you ever wondered if there’s a special reason for that? We’re going to answer this and other popular plane-related questions and also help you pick the best seat aboard as a bonus. With the stress and apprehension that comes with traveling, especially by air, airlines understood that it’s important to calm passengers down and reassure them that everything’s gonna be alright. It turns out blue is the perfect color to send that message. As for materials, the seats can be upholstered with either faux leather or fabric. As a rule, in aircrafts used for long-distance flights, like transatlantic ones, the seats are upholstered with fabric because it’s more breathable for the skin, so passengers won’t sweat, chafe, or experience any discomfort. Tracks on the floor of the aircraft allow rows of seats to be organized at the airline’s discretion, so companies take advantage of this in order to install as many seats as they can physically cram into the space. That’s why plane windows don’t line up with the seats. Most planes are painted white to save money on fuel. The heavier the plane is (and it gets heavier when painted), the more fuel it needs. The color white also reflects light better, which means the plane won’t overheat because of the sun’s rays. Plus, white makes it easier to notice cracks, leaks, and any other damage that needs to be fixed. The temperature onboard is kept close to freezing for a reason. Many airplane passengers get hypoxia, which is when a person is more likely to faint at high altitudes than on the ground. It happens when bodily tissues don’t get enough oxygen. To minimize the risk of it, airlines keep the temperature low.

Blue slows down your heart rate and relaxes tension. -As a rule, in aircrafts used for long-distance flights, the seats are upholstered with fabric because it’s more breathable for the skin. Artificial leather works great for short flights. It’s extremely wearproof, and even spilled drinks don’t stain it. -Plane windows don’t line up with the seats because airlines care about profits and try to install as many seats as they can physically cram into the space. -Planes are white out of economy: paint can make a plane anywhere from 600-1,200 lbs heavier, and the heavier the aircraft is, the more fuel it needs. -To minimize the risk of passengers fainting, airlines keep the temperature and air pressure in the cabin really low. -On flights that are longer than 10½ hours, pilots take turns resting in private bunks for the crew. In case there’s no special rest area onboard or if the flight isn’t that long, pilots take a break in the seat rows within or near the cockpit or even in the passenger cabin. -If you don’t want to listen to the hum of the engine throughout your whole flight, then choose a seat closer to the airplane’s nose. If you’re tall, be sure to sit next to the emergency exit.

The seat color surprised me Afaik, airlines know about the emergency exits being the best seats and they charge more for them - the first row behind first class is better as it has the last space and reclines, but that's in long haul flight not short stuffy three hour low cost inter-europe flights

The seats are blue to match the pills the sheeple are always swallowing. Red seats would lead to a demand for red pills, leading to the end of the psychopathic elite's control of the world.

#4 has nothing to do with the weight, as the colour white is a coat of paint just like any other colour. If they wanted to save weight, they'd just polish the metal and leave the plane unpainted. I believe some airlines might even do that. The main benefit of white in comparison with other colours is that it doesn't fade in the sunlight, so it doesn't need to be resprayed so often. Also the simpler the paint scheme, the cheaper it is to apply, I presume. The other factors mentioned in the video are also true.

I have a question. Why does white paint have to do with weight? I would think American used bare aluminum because of this reason, but finally abandoned it because of the costs of deoxidizing the aluminum cost more than the loss of fuel because of paint weight. But, what does white have to do with weight?

When you remove the waffle: the colour blue calms the passengers, dirt stains etc are less visible. Long distance is fabric as it’s more breathable, fake leather is spillproof and more durable. Windows don’t line up with seats because airlines put more seats in, so it messes up the lining. They are white because it’s more efficient, weight and cost, and won’t overheat, and will show up cracks etc, and easier to spot if it crashes. It’s cold to prevent health issues, such as fainting. Pilots sleep in private bunks (A380 has it below decks), most planes share bathrooms with staff and customers, apart from the b747, and a few others. Closer to front is quieter, and meals are served first. Tall people sit near emergency exit, but they don’t recline.
