What a Tiny Triangle Above Your Plane Seat Means
Many of us think flying is a great way to travel, but things can get dull if you wind up stuck on the tarmac waiting for takeoff. While you’re sitting there wondering if it would’ve taken any longer just to drive, you might notice a little triangular sticker above your window. Only four windows on each plane are marked this way.
Usually red or black, the decals are just large enough to spot if you’re looking for them but easy enough to miss if you aren’t. But why are they there? Is it part of a conspiracy? Well, it turns out the answer isn’t quite so dramatic but interesting nonetheless. Especially if you’re a plane lover!

– If you look closely the next time you’re on a plane, you’ll realize that the triangles line up with the front and back edges of the aircraft’s wings.
– The sticker is there so that the flight attendants know at a glance which windows to look through.
– Many airliners feature a hidden compartment where its exhausted crew can catch up on some much-needed sleep.
– The exact placement of the room varies, but the crew’s quarters are usually found in a small windowless compartment directly above first class.
– Larger planes can feature up to ten bunks, as well as a separate pilot’s quarters directly above the cockpit.
– If you’re flying in a jet made by Airbus, you might’ve noticed a pair of little yellow loops sticking up from the otherwise smooth, white surface of the plane’s wing.
– A plane’s wings need to be smooth so that they remain aerodynamic, but that makes them pretty difficult to stand on.
– Thanks to this fabulous technological breakthrough, evacuating passengers need not worry about an unfortunate tumble down the aircraft’s wings.
– Airliners need to maintain internal pressure for the passengers to be able to breathe comfortably at high altitudes.
– This tiny opening is known as a breather hole and plays a vital role in keeping you flying.
– Most airliners flying today feature a handrail running the length of the overhead compartments. Their primary function is so that the crew can safely move about the cabin during turbulence.
– The most common complaint people have with air travel is the lack of space. Even if you aren’t particularly tall, you’ve probably experienced this for yourself.
– If you’re in the middle seat, well, you’re just going to have to deal with getting the worst of both worlds.
– Feel around on the bottom of the armrest, and you’ll find a little button near the hinge. Press it, and you’re free to move that pesky armrest out of your way.
– This gives you plenty of room to move around, and is a big help when you’re trying to get your bag from the overhead compartment at the end of your flight.
