It’s a general misconception that most plane crashes end in 100% fatality. However according to government data, over 95% of passengers involved in a plane crash survive. With those kinds of odds, I feel a lot better. Here’s how to increase your odds even more. Follow the 5 row rule. Ed Galea, a professor in England researched and analyzed seating charts and interviewed survivors, including crew and pilot and found that survivors usually move an average of five rows before they can get off a burning aircraft.

The people who are most likely to survive a plane crash are people who are sitting right next to the exit row or one row away.

Beyond a five-row cutoff from the exit, your chances of survival are greatly reduced.
