This section is short but there is at least one surprising tip:
Try to book a non-stop flight, as these have fewer takeoffs and landings.
Choose an airline with a good safety and on-time record.
Try to make your stopovers in airports that have a high security standard and good security screening.
Try to fly wide body planes. Hijackers tend to avoid these as having too many passengers.
Most travelers prefer an aisle seat. Choose a window or center seat. This will keep you away from the hijackers and any action that may be happening in the aisle.
