Wellness Shot: Where To Sit On A Plane To Avoid Getting Sick

Spending a few hours inside a sealed metal tube with 200 other people breathing the same air is definitely one way to come down with a cold. But you can lower your risk of catching a bug.

The worst place on the plane? That would be next to or within two rows of someone who is already sick.
