Curious to see what rituals and superstitions exist among travelers... I make sure that on flights going west to east that I sit on the right hand side of the aircraft and going east to west I'm on the left side. always sitting on the south side of the plane. On north-south / south-north legs, I always sit on the "east" side of the aircraft. Dont really know how it started, but thats the way its been for years.
