Have you ever stopped to think about which side of the plane you prefer ? Yet if you’re like most flyers, you undoubtedly prefer the right side of the plane to the left. This isn’t a choice but rather something of an instinct, according to a small study carried out recently by the University of Edinburgh.

The researchers changed the orientation of the seating diagram to rule out a preference for a side of the screen and found that participants overwhelmingly still chose the right side of the plane.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, people also favored seats toward the front of the aircraft and those that were not in the middle of an aisle.

"The result clearly showed that the orientation of the plane made no difference to the preference, with most participants still making an active choice to choose seating on the right of the plane," Sergio Della Sala, a member of the research team, told BBC.

“The research shows that people’s preference as to which side they sit on in an airplane is dictated by our mind’s rightward bias in representing the real world,” Darling added.

It could be a quirk of the brain, or it could be related to the fact that boarding on commercial jets is almost universally The professor said he plans on continuing his studies on lateral bias in different settings, like on passenger trains.

A rightward bias has been demonstrated in other studies stretching back decades. A study in 1978 for instance asked passersby to choose between four pairs of identical nylons or four identical nightgowns. They overwhelmingly chose the objects that were on the right side of a department store window, justifying their choice by saying that it was of higher quality, not knowing that the objects were in fact the same.
