This one is pretty obvious as sitting next to the bathroom isn’t the most brilliant idea as there are many problems that you will encounter. The first is that you have to deal with all the awful smells that creep out of the door when it is opened and closed.

Another reason not to sit near the bathroom is that you will be bothered by a line of people the whole flight that will just be standing there. If something happens to the toilet, you will be the first to know as these are sometimes known to flood; so next time, pick a different seat.
