Aviation analysts have weighed in after a Dutch airline was blasted for tweeting advice on where passengers should pick their seats based on fatality rates....

Aviation analysts are divided on the best place to sit in an aircraft – mainly because every plane crash is different – but all agree that the risk of being caught in a crash is incredibly slim.

Monash University professor Greg Bamber said travelling by plane was much safer than travelling by car.

“The possibility of being killed when you travel by plane is so tiny that it hardly bares thinking about, even though many people have a fear of flying,” Professor Bamber said.
